Music Talk  - 
 
OK so I learned a lot about the music I grew up with, and it all started w/ Cut Chemist's The Garden.  Ironically, that's not the song I ended up using, but it's great to take some time to learn about the instruments used in the Brazilian music I used to listen to as a child during "cocktail hour" :-)  I'm sure I only grazed the surface of all the percussion used here, but it was a cool exercise to train my ear to hear specific sounds and their relationship to each other.

So, I used Frederico Aubele's "Esta Noche"  - can't wait for Week #3!

Technology use in programs  - 
 
We have Youth librarians integrating presentations into their classes using iPads. The trouble has been getting the music off the CDs and into the presentations - no iTunes on staff computers right now.  Legality? Possible?

Hey there! Thanks to the Twitter nation, I learned only today about this awesome learning opportunity. Lots of folks in libraryland are gearing up or are already offering cool digital music production tools and classes to their patrons. I'm excited to learn all about this topic so I can better help our org plan for and/or implement something similar in our community.

Hey everyone- sorry if I didn't see your request to join until after the event!  Alex and Cathy demo'd their respective sites- NNPL and Norfolk PL.  http://nnpls.libguides.com/friendly.php?s=home and http://www.npl.lib.va.us/ - both very impressive!  We'll send out info about meeting maybe after the New Year. In the meantime, please feel free to use this Community to ask questions and share.

Thanks!
Nicole

This is an excellent article, and it speaks to a lot of what is being said in class about perceptual and intellectual constraints to creativity. Thanks for sharing.  I like the suggestion of embracing the 'absurd.'
