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 synthesisers and laptops, students created a new collaborative sound piece using found objects. Their new compositions were performed throughout the week to a public audience.

Such a great day making music in a different way. I loved it. What’s the point of being like everyone else? Student

I was scared of performing and was worried before we started playing but felt good once we started! Student

Thank you so much for your time and for a great visit to the Gallery. The setup and the way it was run was perfect – informative and interesting. I’m hoping that this is the start of a long and fruitful relationship! Teacher
