Vegetable Orchestra

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.
