Musical keyboard for cats - level 2

Musical keyboard for cats - level 2

04-10-2014 15:00

This news is especially for cat lovers! A team of vets, scientists and sound artists created a keyboard for cats. You play it just like a normal keyboard, and it converts the sound into frequencies for cats. Both the keyboard player and the cats can enjoy the music!

Part of a campaign designed the keyboard. The campaign is called the Pussy Cat Riot. This campaign is anti-Internet censorship. The first live show was a protest performance playing national anthems of countries that censor the Internet. The audience was, of course, made of cats.

Difficult words: convert (change), frequency (type of sound), censorship (the act of censoring – controlling).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
