Koko explores a new electronic keyboard given to her as a gift by Gorilla Foundation supporters Tom and Marilyn Piggot. The keyboard has built in orchestral sounds as well as a light-driven tutorial. Koko was a little shaken when the sound abruptly switched form piano to drum, but she”s starting to get the hang of it.
We”ll let you know how/if she progresses with her musical explorations, and if she decides to compose any tunes of her own. (Anyone out there developing an American Ape Idol reality show?)
Thank you, Marilyn and Tom, for introducing this new sensory dimension to Koko.
