(or, a bunch of geeky profs who think they can sing, shout and clap)
I’ve been waiting to blog about this for a few weeks, and the sound clip that accompanies this post is finally available. One of the presenters at a entrepreneurship education conference I recently attended composes and records music. John Tanner of Tanner-Monagle, Inc. brought his “studio” along to the hotel and did a participative session in which we actually laid down several rhythm tracks, and a vocal track. (He also added piano, drum, bass, and some other vocal effects to liven it up.)
So, without further ado, here’s the wolfpack theme song:
The composition was based on a poem by Rudyard Kipling:
Now this is the law of the jungle –
As old and as true as the sky;
And the wolf that keep it may prosper,
But the wolf that shall break it may die.
As the creeper that girdles the tree trunk,
The law runneth forward and back –
And the strength of the pack is the wolf
And the strength of the wolf is the pack.
If you have not guessed, it is all about teamwork and mutuality. Good message not just for engineering profs but for all of us global citizens…
