Continuing a busy year we are now into festival season.
We have designed a range of t-shirts themed around the different colours of noise. Each colour has a different scientific definition of what that colour of noise means. Available in children’s, men’s and women’s sizes from: shop.spreadshirt.co.uk/schoolofnoise
We are excited to be back at Chats Palace Arts Centre for 7 workshops with a showcase on the main stage on the 9th July.
There is no need to come to a specific number of workshops to be part of the show.
People can come to as many or as few workshops as they’d like.
Session 1 – 10am-10:50am
Session 2 – 11:00am-11:50am
Here are three pieces created at our after school club at Rushmore Primary School in Hackney, London.
All of the sounds were created by tapping, wafting, twanging and scraping rulers.
This piece involved a group of five children who each had one glockenspiel note, a metronome and a dice.
1. Roll the dice to determine a number
2. Start the metronomes
3. Strike the glockenspiel note after the number of ticks determined by the dice roll.
(i.e if it landed on a 3 then on the third tick strike the note)
In this recording you can hear one of the notes being played on every beat, this is because one of the children rolled a 1.
At a recent workshop a group of children made a Dadaist poem using a cut-up technique. This involved cutting out words from newspaper headlines on the day after David Bowie passed away. The words were put into a bag and pulled out randomly one by one to form a poem. The children read the poem aloud and recorded it. Bowie had used this cut-up technique to create some of his lyrics and this is our homage to his life and works.
