Episode one logo Episode One: Say Hello to Music Blocks

This is an Episodic show. You can listen to it in any order, but episode one is always a great place to start.

Full Episode description

Grab a box of tissues. This episode of Music Blocks is about the powerful and inventive ways musicians take sadness and turn it into memorable music. We’ll hear examples from Four Tet, Charles Mingus, Samuel Barber, Joeboy, Youssou N’Dour and Neneh Cherry.

Stuff to think about after you’ve listened:

  • Sometimes when we are sad, we want to feel that emotion. Are there songs that you play that help you to feel sad?
  • Think about a person or an event that you want to write a sad song about. What kinds of sounds would you use?

This is one of eight Music Blocks episodes exploring how musicians express emotions through sound. You can listen in any order. Find more episodes, discussion questions and playlists at MusicBlocksPodcast.org.
