the whole will become a call used for marches, demonstrations, and sit-ins. As thousands of people step together and breathe together, the sound that we emit will be impossible to ignore or argue, because it lacks words that can be skewed or manipulated.
The minimum pledge level is $1 dollar, which covers the cost of the Harmonica and shipping exactly. With each dollar given one Occupier will be equipped with their instrument at Occupy Wall Street on November 5, 2011.
When you pay $1 and attend the march on November 5, we will deliver the harmonica to you in person. Consequently, if you choose to pledge more, more people will receive harmonicas.
The goal is to get 10,000 harmonicas in the hands of 10,000 occupiers. The funding goal is set at $1,000.00 only to try and pass the funding mark successfully.
the thousands that will be there or insuring with your pledge that each occupier will have a harmonica to amplify their breath and presence.
Basic Harmonica Instruction for the 11 / 05 / 11 march:
1. Keep your breathing on the "low" end of the harmonica.
2. For rhythm, follow your inhale and exhale that is normal for you when you take deep breaths.
This video will demonstrate basic instruction. Remember that each person's sound will vary depending on their unique pattern of breath.
This video will give you an idea of the collective sound, but will in no way illustrate the magnitude of what will occur on 11 / 05 / 11.
