Music to your ears


Ever fancied being conductor and/or composer of classical tunage? Yes, us too. Now you jolly well can with this pack of 60 transparent cards which you arrange into compositions of 4, 8, 12 or 16 card sets, tap each ones code into the online studio, sit back, baton in hand, and enjoy your composition.  Created in conjunction with musical maestro Philip Sheppard, you can have the tune played back in Marimba (Xylophone sounding) or full Orchestra and saved to digital format when you’ve created your first masterpiece. Whilst the experience isn’t mobile compatible, which disappointed us at first, once you’ve started to get involved in Compose Yourself it’s really quite fun, for the musically inept such as I and those with a more tuneful ear too. The young adults at Toyology Towers used their compositions in Garage Band and came up with, so they said, some “wicked drop beats” – And that ladies and gentlemen you’ll not hear every day from this tough-to-please crowd.
