OOOOppps!!!!! Sorry for the last email I got distracted by a phone
call and hit the send button before I meant to, I was going to edit
out the original post so it wasn't so huge.
A couple of books that have great stories and observations and some
listening exercises are The Listening Book and The Musical Life both
by W A Mathieu.
Other books: Sound and Structure by John Paynter and Composing Music
by Willian Russo
Other thoughts I had were using PVC pipe to make instruments
including a didgeridoo using beeswax for the mouth piece. http:// www.wikihow.com/Make-a-Didgeridoo-out-of-PVC-Pipe
Experiment with drones and ostinato.
I'll probably think of more later.
