Is it possible to make music out of things you have around you?
Out of all sorts of "nick-nack"?
We've tried - and YES! - it is possible!
"Music" is all around us - we just have to find it and define it... As we learned in the lesson "What is sound", an object has to vibrate in some way to make a sound.
In addition it is very useful to have some small machines/motors to help you make the sound - like the ones we were introduced to in this lesson. We also got a place to record/save our composition. During this lesson we made our own musical instruments - out of all sorts of nick-nack and things we found. Creativity was at a high speed....
As the "instruments" were ready, we connected the motor to the computer. We could start composing! We could adjust and tune our instruments, and we could make as many compositions we wanted after we had made the instruments. The video beneath shows the whole process and the amazing result. Enjoy!
