I spot this app on App Store yesterday. It is a very interesting music app – no key boards, but random objects shaped like a square, a round button, a triangle. To make music, you simply move different objects around, the interactions among the objects create different sound, thus a beautiful piece of music.
The movements of the objects follow some physics principles: if you throw an object towards a wall, it will bounce back. If you swing an object with a string attached to the ceiling, it will swing back and forth. There is a user manual teaching you what different objects do and the sound quality they generate. But I think a great use of the app for kids is to let them be creative without any instructions, and let them figure things out on their own. Hopefully this will help them discover some beautiful sound in daily life: hitting sound of two toys, sound of a stone thrown into the lake, birds singing, sound from wind and rain, sound of splashing water in the pool… After all, these are where the real music are from.
