NATIONAL KAZOO DAY
Join us in the Seuss Room of Geisel Library for this signature event. Hear new chamber works for kazoo written by UC San Diego alumni composers. Learn why the kazoo is much more than an annoying party favor: We’ll view detailed patent information about the kazoo, and reveal some surprising kazoo appearances in classical and pop music.
Open to the public and all ages are welcome! And yes, January 28 really is National Kazoo Day.

When cinema was theatre and radio was young...
Scott Paulson is an award-winning soundscape artist who has been heard on radio, television, and film. His performance ensemble, the Teeny-Tiny Pit Orchestra, provides live music and sounds for silent film screenings, ballet productions, radio dramas, operas, and theatrical productions. At many of his live shows, Paulson asks the audience to assist: Strike a thundersheet! Use exotic wooden birdcalls! Roll out an elegant harp glissando! Play a Theremin, if you dare! In addition to his slapstick and experimental music activities, Paulson is an orchestral oboist, and also is the University Carillonneur at UC San Diego, performing live on Geisel Library's rooftop chimes. (Yes, he takes song requests!) Scott is the Exhibits & Events Coordinator at the UC San Diego Library, for which he founded and directs various festivals: The Short Attention Span Chamber Music Series, the annual Toy Piano Festival, The Not-So-Silent Film Festival, and a Paper Theatre Festival.
