Making Music


A loud and exciting day- little did we realise that Fountaindale was so full of musicians!

Last week pupils found and recorded sounds from around school – a buzzing machine in a cupboard, clinking cutlery, wheelchairs beeps and creaks, Tom beat-boxing, and much more.  This week they turned those everyday noises into something rather extraordinary!

We’ll be using some of this music to accompany the film that we’ve been making about school, but in the meantime you can have a listen to the unedited stuff here.  BEWARE – it’s quite spooky!

Karl, Jack, Halley – Crazy Sounds!

For those of you who were interested in getting the software and hardware yourselves please have a look at these websites:

Energy XT is the software we use on our computers

We were also using the NanoKEY and Nano PAD from Korg’s Nano range.
