What Tree Rings Sound Like Played on a Record Player

What Tree Rings Sound Like Played on a Record Player | Music | Scoop.it
Artist Bartholomäus Traubeck has built a record player that can play a cross-sectional slice of a tree trunk. Here's what the tree rings sound like.
Riley Cavanagh's insight:

Understanding the advances science has made, especially in the context of music, discuss the relevance of this and how it can be used as a metaphor for culture and deforestation. What chord progressions and tones used in this piece by the tree trunk slice could be interpreted to represent this. In groups, discuss the sounds made by this and create a description of what the tree sounds could be interpreted to and share your answer with the class.

Axis of Awesome - 4 Four Chord Song (with song titles)

Australian comedy group 'Axis Of Awesome' perform a sketch from the 2009 Melbourne International Comedy Festival. Footage courtesy of Network Ten Australia. ...
Riley Cavanagh's insight:

After viewing this video and understanding how these chords are used in majorly distributed and popular music. (In groups), list as many other songs as you can think of that use the same chord progression. Once you and your group have done this, using available instruments for today's class, create a small (30 seconds maximum) song with lyrics using these chords to show with the rest of the class.
