In a four-part series of online masterclasses for Sounds Unheard, Mark Applebaum – composer, performer and instrument creator – discusses Musical Disciplines: Jazz Improvisation & Beyond.
In his third online masterclass, Mark introduces us to The Mousketier, an invented sound sculpture. Mark explains what his instrument is built out of, how to play it, and some of the pros and cons of playing a one-of-a-kind instrument.
