Making A Track From Children's Sounds
A couple of months ago Sally, a teacher friend of mine, got in touch to tell me about a project she was doing with her students during lockdown. The kids were challenged to record musical snippets or sounds they found interesting at home using a phone or tablet. Sally sent the recordings to a selection of musicians to make a piece of music with, so the kids could hear how their sounds inspired creativity in different ways!
It took me a while to get to it but I’ve finally made a track with the incredible and unusual sounds the kids recorded! I called it Fishponds Cat Club cos of the cat sound, and because I was wearing my cat t-shirt while I made it :)
Big thanks to the children and staff of Fishponds Church of England Academy!
I’m curious, did you have a favourite sound?
