Renew, reuse, recycle. Pretty much everyone knows what this slogan refers to especially with more focus on the earth these days in regards to recycling. So, what about when it comes to music? Some people have learned to create music from garbage. One young man from Mexico City built instruments from cardboard, cans, PVC pipe, broken appliances and more. In Paraguay there is a band that builds their instruments out of recycled materials. They city is built on top of a landfill.
Music is a very powerful force and humans will create it in very ingenious ways.
There is a show in Las Vegas called Recycled Percussion. The band uses items like power tools, ladders, buckets and trashcans. They manipulated these items to put out a stunning percussion sound. They were discovered on “America’s Got Talent” and now have a residency at Planet Hollywood on the Las Vegas Strip.
Music is generally the central focus of most of the shows in Las Vegas. Here are a few that would be worth checking out:
- The Blue Man Group – performing at the Luxor Casino. 3 college friends create the concept of the bald blue man and the music they create. The show is interactive with the audience. It is moving, fun, and mystical all the same time.
- Le Reve – The Wynn Hotel and Casino. The show ranges from high diving to underwater dance. The combination of dance and music is mesmerizing. The talents of these amazing performers leave you in awe and feeling magical.
- The Beatles Love – Some people compare it to being in the studio with the band. If you were ever a part of Beatlemania or “All You Need is Love” then this is a must see.
Music is created and presented in so many different ways. I think it’s fun to try to experience any different application of music you can. Humans can not resist music. Most of us feel music more than we hear it. We play it for almost any occasion whether it is a party, a funeral, a wedding, or to help us sleep. Just take a moment to think what just one day would be like if you didn’t hear music. It would be a very bleak day, if you ask me.
