The Musician's Dice are a creative tool that can be used in any number of ways: they bring the element of chance into the musical process. They can be used in composing Aleatory (Chance) and 12-tone music, or as a basis for improvisation; they're fun in a jam session. They also make an effective study tool: they can be used as "musical flash cards" when learning harmony, and their randomness makes for fresh and challenging exercise in sight-singing and ear training. Created and patented by composer and recording artist J S Kingfisher, the Musician's Dice make a great gift for the music-minded: they're elegant, creative, fun to fondle, and look cool on the coffee table!
