2016: John Macedo and St Andrew the Apostle Greek School

  • John Macedo and St Andrew the Apostle Greek School Whitechapel Gallery Masterclass

Masterclass
John Macedo and St Andrew the Apostle Greek School, Barnet, Year 9

Students explored digital and analogue music-making with sound artist John Macedo. Informed by the current exhibitions and by Macedo’s working set-up of synthesizers and laptops, students created a new collaborative sound piece.

Their new compositions were performed to an invited audience of students, teachers, head teacher and governor.


I have learnt today how to make sounds from anything. We were not working on a song but on a sound piece. Student, St Andrew the Apostle Greek School

It was great to work with a real artist because he talked about interesting things you don’t get to learn about at school, for example why it is important to be original and not doing what everyone else is doing. He said he was from a conventional music background and now is doing this experimental stuff. I didn’t know this is possible. Student, St Andrew the Apostle Greek School
