Farmopolis – DIY Bird Boxes

BirdboxesWe 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.

Glockwork

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.
