Braga has just started its participation in the City Rings project. We are working with 5th grade and 6th grade pupils from Colégio João Paulo II. As this school doesn’t have a bell, we recorded the church bells right next to it.
Before starting to record “mySounds”, we saw a video about foley recording and discussed how some sounds create the illusion of coming from a totally different object than its real source. After this discussion, every pupil recorded a sound they loved. Here are some examples:
You can hear and download the whole “mySounds” pack here.
Then, we listened to all the sounds and tried to associate each one with different objects and meanings.
To end the session, we did a small SoundScape with the sounds they have recorded. The students decided the order of the sounds and whether to include them or not.
