The children were asked to listen intently to a piece of music, then they participated actively in an analysis of its structure and content. After that the children began to draw. (Rephrased)
All the experiments have proven to have great pedagogical effectiveness:

In Goethe’s original triangle the three primaries red, yellow, and blue are arranged at the vertices of the triangle. The other subdivisions of the triangle are grouped into secondary and tertiary triangles, where the secondary triangle colors represent the mix of the two primary triangles to either side of it, and the tertiary triangle colors represent the mix of the primary triangle adjacent to it and the secondary triangle directly across from it.
3살 딸아이가 눌러보고 흔들어보고 재밌게 노네요. 다른 앱들과 달리 자극적이지 않고 차분하게 사운드도 들으면서 노니까 부모입장에서 안심이 되네요. 아이들에게 시각적 형태감이나 음악적 감성을 자극할 수 있는 교육적 측면이 높은 앱인거 같습니다.
My 3 year old daughter had fun shaking and playing. Unlike other apps, Sound Sketchbook is comforting for the parents because its highly child-friendly and lets your child hear soothing sounds. So I can give my iPhone to my child with Sound Sketchbook with no worries. Highly educational for children to get used to graphical forms and musical sensibilities.

The geometric point is an invisible thing. Therefore, it must be defined as an incorporeal thing. Considered in terms of substance, it equals zero.
Hidden in this zero, however, are various attributes which are “human” in nature. We think of this zero – the geometric point – in relation to the greatest possible brevity, i.e., to the highest degree of restraint which, nevertheless, speaks.
Thus we look upon the geometric point as the ultimate and most singular union of silence and speech.
The geometric point has, therefore, been given its material form, in the first instance, in writing. It belongs to language and signifies silence.
