We are very excited to read what Jarvis Cocker had to say about our workshops:
“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! Dan Mayfield manages to communicate this fact to all those he works with. I doff my cap to him” – Jarvis Cocker
Here is the link to the Independent article on School of Noise where Dan explains more about the project and what the School of Noise is all about – here
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.
The SCHOOL of NOISE have been invited to perform a live set at the Union Chapel on the 6th June at 12:00 as part of Daylight Music‘s summer season of events. All are welcome to come along and watch 10 children performing a set of experimental electronic music in one of London’s finest music venues. For more details please visit here
Welcome to the SCHOOL of NOISE website! We’ll be posting information about the workshops and the things we create in them here, as well as interesting and inspiring noise and sound-related resources from around the web. To begin, here’s a video of our ancestors the Shoreditch Experimental Music School in 1969.
