Singing Sock Puppets by Matthew Brown

This is a MIDI controller sock puppet. Opening and closing the mouth bends a flex sensor and makes the puppet ’sing’ up and down a scale. He can be tuned to sing in any scale - blues, pentatonic, chromatic and so on. These puppets could be used to help illustrate relatively complex musical theory - such as the differences between blues, chromatic and pentatonic scales - through play; this type of musical terminology doesn’t normally enter the school music curriculum until GCSE level in the UK (ages 15 - 16).
