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.

Bowie Cut-Up Poem

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.
