5/6 Audio Recordings Out In The Field

The grade 5/6 students officially started their recording projects last week. Over the next 4-5 weeks the students will be collecting numerous sounds from around the school. These sounds will form the basis of a larger soundscape or rhythmic composition.

The learning intention of this session was to experiment with the hardware and software to discover the limitations and possibilities. The students had to work in pairs using Garageband on the iPad to record a series of sounds and see if they could loop them into a short rhythmic piece of music.

The students were inspired by Diago Stocco’s recordings of “Music From A Dry Cleaner” and “Music From A Tree” (See videos below)
