TED TALKS: “Playing An Audience Like An Instrument”

In this highly engaging 3-minute presentation at the World Science Festival, Bobby McFerrin, a world-renowned musical performer and educator, uses audience participation to demonstrate the power of the pentatonic scale and the brain. In a very light-hearted, whimsical manner, he shows how an audience can be played in the same way a piano can be played, and how the brain can fill in the gaps in such a performance.
