As with all Billy's music, the main instrument for What Kind of Cat Are You! is the audience: call-and-response lyrics, open-ended questions, and quiet instructions that inspire movement and imaginative thought. Nearly every song on What Kind of Cat Are You! was inspired by and developed in performances with live audiences and features an amazing amalgam of musical styles, sure to pique the interest of everyone in the family. Each piece employs a mix of traditional instruments and lively Industrial Re-percussion (homemade instruments fashioned from found and recyclable objects). Children's voices provide just the right backdrop for singing along. What Kind of Cat Are You! engages listeners on many levels - physically, musically and intellectually. The songs simultaneously invite the listener to dance, do hand motions, sing the lyrics, answer musical riddles, or bang on a drum or box top. The combination of music, rhythm, and participatory lyrics creates an irresistible oscillation in the mind and body.
