There's a Lot of Things Up There
I was told that the child's voice in my last piece was the most interesting. I agreed. When recording my original Pluto story with seven-year-old Alex, I was surprised to find out that he had no idea what Pluto was. But being born after Pluto was deemed a dwarf planet, why would he? It sparked my interest in finding out what kids do know, or don't know, about the universe. I reinterviewed Alex, along with two other students from my mom's first grade class to find out. I think their "insight" will make for interesting commentary in the planetarium setting, but I'm wondering if the piece could benefit from the addition of music. Thoughts?
