Carnegie Kids: Songs for Unusual Creatures

Resnick Education Wing
Multi-instrumentalist, composer, and writer Michael Hearst and his band Songs for Unusual Creatures introduce families to some of the most bizarre animals on the planet. Hearst and his compatriots make these creatures come to life with the use of a wide range of peculiar instruments, including claviola, theremin, and stylophone. Unusual creatures—such as the blue-footed booby and blobfish—slither, soar, and scamper along in video projections to the band’s quirky tunes.
