A Kansas City musician who conjures sounds from painting
A Kansas City artist invented an instrument that paints and composes at the same time, creating music with a brush stroke. Plus, one Kansas golfer is trying to bring more diversity to the caddie community.
Local musician Camry Ivory wondered what it would be like to paint a picture and compose a song at the same time. With that in mind, she created the Coloratura: a device that plays a note with every brushstroke, allowing artists to create paintings and music simultaneously. KCUR's Julie Denesha reports.
The number of caddie programs is dwindling in Kansas City. Coupled with a lack of diversity, it looks like the profession is quickly fading. KCUR's Greg Echlin reports on one caddie's mission to reignite interest while paving the way for a more diverse community.
