Jon Madin has a genius for finding music in stuff you can find at Home Depot. He makes not noise, but notes…agreeably shaped and tuned sounds that make you smile. Then he can organize a room of note makers into songs. He finds the music not just in the fingers and lips, but in the march or dance of your whole body.

Construct Danceable Ding Boxes, Shaker Rings, Flubber Pipes and maybe even Boing Pipes. Decorate them artfully. Practice. Play. Perform.
