This track was created by live sampling sounds from the construction of a bird box. The sanding, hammering, drilling and sawing noises were recorded into Logic and edited on the fly to create an evolving soundscape to accompany the DIY. After 45 minutes we ended up with a completed bird box and piece of music.
We are going to be visiting Farmopolis on the 1st October to perform and record a live soundtrack as we turn a plank of wood into a bird box. The sawing, hammering, sanding and many other sounds will be captured then sculpted to create a piece of music. This workshop aims to inspire fledgling musicians to explore the possibilities of using different sound sources as well as trying out recording and bird box building techniques.

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 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.
