Hello old and new TCR, students, parents and friends – for our first session 5b and I were in the Art room where I introduced the students to the TCR project and we looked at how the sound recorder worked. I showed the students the foley artist clip on youtube that was shown to me by another TCR participant last year, which is great to give students an idea of how sounds can create illusions and imitate actions and other sounds with sound. Students then found objects in the Art room to make sounds with to record them with the recorder and also listen to the sounds through the head phones while they are recording to able to hear the qualities and details of the sounds as if the sounds are magnified through the high quality recorders.
Here are the short sound samples of recorded objects from the Art room:
We also made one long continuous recording while everyone was playing their object that they found. Students made quiet sounds while the sound recorder moved from student to student sitting at their tables making sounds with their object.
