Do you use your vocal, musical or audio production gifts in non-traditional ways?
No doubt you have seen a variety of different if not quirky ways that people express creativity.
Hear about what I do in today's VOX Daily and join the conversation by adding your amazing applications of creativity that help to jazz up the mundane.
Let Nothing Go To Waste!
If you're like me, you might strive to find ways to make physical things like clothing or food go a little further in your home, but what about your time?
How can we turn moments of monotony into delightful opportunities that creatively use our talent and skills?
What sort of things might someone do?
To give an example, I sings songs while cooking set in the key produced by the tone emanating from the fan above my stove top. That tone is designated as tonic and the key signature is derived, whether major or minor, from the fan's tone. Most often, the key I sing in when making dinner is B Flat Major but a tune in G Minor tune will be sung occasionally. More often than not, the song turns out to be an improvised vocalise.
Gravitating toward a nearby tonic seems to be a popular thing to do. One of my former classmates at the Faculty of Music let me know that she sings in the key of her hairdryer each morning as she prepares for her day! Someone else chimed in to say that the howling of neighborhood dogs usually sets the backdrop for her songs.
What Do You Do?
