little sketches on tape (excerpt)

So I played some of these songs for a captive audience of 2nd graders.  I called them over in little groups and made my eyes very wide and serious as told them that they were going to be part of a conceptual art project.  And although they had probably never heard that phrase before, the responded in kind.  I played the songs off my iPod and told them to draw about the music, whatever it made them think of.  I was surprised at who ended up taking it very seriously and which ones were bored and confused.  Some good quotes:  “It sounds like a rocket ship taking off!” ..  “Can you play some real music now?  Some Michael Jackson?”  and “Is this a man or a woman?  It sounds like a man-woman!” to which Antoine replied “I seen a man-woman once!  It was doing a funny dance.”
