Durwood ’86 Creates Sesame Video Music

Peter Durwood ’86 and Grover.

Singer and composer Peter Durwood ’86, who crafts music and sound design for Sesame Workshop digital products, recently created the sound for a Sesame video that has become popular on YouTube.

In it, Grover, the furry blue monster, riffs on the Old Spice web-ads.

“I was an art major at Wes, but an unofficial music minor, particularly enjoying Mark Slobin’s Worlds of Music course, several semesters of African Drumming with Abraham Adzinyah, and Bill Lowe’s remarkable History of African-American Music,” says Durwood.

His album, Peter Durwood, will soon be available on iTunes.
