And here we are with a lot of beloved objects that represent us.
We started the class by checking the blog, where we learned about your school, and also that you were younger ! and cute :P
We wondered about the kind of sounds that you can hear where you live and around the school. We talked about vehicles, animals and the weather; and tried to imagine the differences between Barcelona and Saint-Guinoux
We’ll discover soon, with your sonic postcards!
After demonstrating collectively how do you attempt to find sounds in an object, by looking for its materials and different ways of “activating” them; everybody started to work on his own .
We explored for quite a while, and wrote down about 5 different sounds per object. Selecting, in the end, about 1 or 2 per person, to be recorded.
As you can see the objects were quite diverse (even a BMX bike!) and so were the manners in which we activated them.
Listening, and in particular listening through the recorder, was a way to understand better the possibilities of each object. Is it plastic or furry? is it ressonant inside as an instrument? can it turn or twist?
We look forward to read and listen to the sounds you recorded, and to what you do with our sounds. And we are also very excited about listening to your sounds and composing something out of them. How will it sound?
It will happen soon!
Thank you for the work!
