THE MUSIC ISSUE
Find something that moves you in this issue all about music: musical costumes, instruments, inventions and poems about underwater bands of rockin’ jellyfish.
Guest curator Shawn Harris collaborates with writer Colin Meloy to prove that everyone can be a musician with their rad how-to zine, interpreted by four different artists. Peruse instruments from around the globe. Read interviews with a music ethnologist and album cover artists. Discover divas of disco and the world’s most danceable music. Make edible disco balls with Dog Chef, and invent your own Fictophones (imaginary instruments) with our story-starter cards.
Enjoy trying to answer the impossible question, “What IS the world’s most danceable music?” Gather friends to try the DIY line dance moves, and grab your closest instrument (or kitchen pot) and get ready to groove in this issue filled with rhythm and energy.
