Composing sounds using digital apps
Do you want to learn how everyday sounds may become music? Create your own composition using digital tools.
JAN – APR 2019
For middle and high grade students
Did you know that music can be something like a Lego construction? That you can use plain, everyday sounds to build your musical composition step by step? In this workshop, we will show you how to do it through digital technology.
What is a musical composition? And how hard can it be? “Not too hard,” is our answer, as you are bound to find out.
Because in this workshop we will use plain, everyday sounds and recordings that we have prepared for you, and you can turn them into a composition with the help of a program called “Compose with sounds” and create your own piece. We will also teach you how you can tweak with the character, duration and rhythm, so that you can express yourself in your work.
At the same time, you, your schoolmates and your teachers (who must be really great, since they’ve suggested something so creative) will find out how to use a very smart digital tool that you can later exploit by yourselves in other fields like technology and art. At the end of the programme, you will present your own compositions.
