Creative Juices

This is a video I mentioned to some people in class that I would post here for its humor value more than anything else.

Oh geez. Music Theory in Action.

This dude totally analyzes Eleanor Rigby. As in chords, and phrasing, and how if you put all of the letters into this weird system he made up, and send $5 to his paypal account, your true love will kiss you within 30 days, and if you don't tell at least 10 more people, Santa Claus will step on your dog, or something like that. Okay, part of that is outright lying, but the rest is good stuff. It's hard to make new songs if you dunno what they're made of. Check this out. k thx.

Percussion Project

Ok, so, I sat down today to figure out exactly what I was doing for this percussion project, but I looked at the sheet from the website and was confused. Are we only allowed to do either a multiple percussion solo: a piece to be played by one person with multiple instruments, or a piece for a percussion ensemble with a minimum of 8 instruments? In other words, we can't have a piece with three instuments being played at the same time by three different people? If anyone could clarify, it would be greatly appreciated.
