On 14 & 15 August, Crashendo! students from the Beethovens group worked with sound artist Nat Grant. They had a great time creating their own soundscapes and drawing what sound means to them. Then they worked together to perform their sound ideas in performance in front of their friends.
Students were challenged to explore extended techniques on their instruments and find the courage to make music up on the spot.
Thanks to Nat for inspiring the students to reach outside themselves. It was a fun, creatively safe space for students to compose and improvise.
Thanks to Creative Victoria for making this project possible, Nat Grant for her inspiring workshops, and Teaching Artists Miranda Hill, Kristen Perry & Jennifer Timmins for all their help. Check out recordings from the project on SoundCloud.
