These videos were taken from some work that we did with the children - to create a Vegetable Orchestra. This project was inspired by the work of ‘The Vienna Vegetable Orchestra’. Over 3 sessions nursery children:
- shopped for vegetables;
- made them into instruments; and
- experimented recording sounds with them using an IPAD sound sampling app called ‘MADPAD’.
(MADPAD takes a picture of the sound and then becomes a touch drum pad which children can create their own compositions on).
Children made a carrot trumpet, pepper shaker, aubergine castanets, and drums from various melons, pumpkins, and squash.
And explored lots of ways of producing and recording unusual sounds.
