“How do you liven up an ordinary day in Newcastle? Play the first movement of the Moonlight Sonata in a bus station, and get commuters to play the single melodic lines. Many of the contributors had never played, and added their single-note contributions through the power of editing. The professional pianist in the video is Andy Jackson.”
This is so much fun, and a great way to demystify classical music. I love the “I’m doing it!” look so many of the commuters get on their faces while they plink their one note.
