About

“The School of Noise is one of those ideas that you just KNOW is right: bringing back a sense of wonder & accessibility to music-making. Music is organised noise & organising noise is fun! – Jarvis Cocker

“School of Noise is a brilliant idea: introducing children to a world of sound and the machinery to make it.” – Q Mag

Introduction

The School of Noise runs workshops for children, teenagers 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, 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.
