“School of Noise is a brilliant idea: introducing children to a world of sound and the machinery to make it.” Q Mag
The School of Noise runs workshops for young people and adults encouraging the exploration of noise, sound and music. Our aim is to provide creative and imaginative activities using sound in accessible, fun and educational ways.
Using a wide variety of analogue and digital equipment our activities include; sculpting sounds using small modular synthesisers, composing original experimental sound art, the science of sound, Foley sound design, circuit bending, field recording, coding and programming, building cardboard record players, conducting orchestras of fruit and vegetables, preparing pianos, soundwalks, learning about acoustic ecology plus more.
There is no need to have experience playing music or using any of our equipment to take part in the workshops and they are open to people of all abilities.
We are available to run workshops at schools, festivals, art centres, museums, children’s parties and anywhere else that would like us.
