Ted Talk Tuesday: Mark Applebaum: The mad scientist of music

“Is it music? … This is not the important question. The important question is, is it interesting?” (Mark Applebaum)

Mark Applebaum: The mad scientist of music

Mark Applebaum writes music that breaks the rules in fantastic ways, composing a concerto for a florist and crafting a musical instrument from junk and found objects. This quirky talk might just inspire you to shake up the “rules” of your own creative work. (Filmed at TEDxStanford.)

This is a fantastic talk and around 17 minutes long. It’s worth your time.

What did you think about this? He calls Beethoven BORING! *Gasp* Did you like his transformation? This might be great to show High School Students.
