Happy Friday! Welcome to the last day of JINGLE WEEK on IPR's Kids Commute - classical music for kids!
This week, we're listening to music you might have heard featured in a commercial - but only in a tiny snippet. What was that music you heard, and what does the rest of it sound like? Let's find out!
Today, we're hearing music by composer Simon Jeffes, and the delightfully quirky Penguin Cafe Orchestra. The piece is called, "Perpetuum Mobile," which means, "Perpetual Motion" (always moving). This is music that makes variations (changes) on a repetitive pattern. You'll hear this piece in a lot of places - in this instance, it was used in an advertisement for technology.
