Students at a school in Iqaluit, Nunavut, are working with computer programs that allow them to remix traditional Inuit throat singing into the modern world. Workshop leader Nelson Tagoona says programs like this can give kids a powerful creative outlet. (The program was sponsored by Actua, an Ottawa-based charity that promotes education in science, engineering and technology. Actua instructors showed the throat singers how to use a simple computer program to record their songs, chop them up, recombine them, add bits from their friends' songs and blend different elements together.)
