Insect stomp


Veronika Grossberger (AT)

In this workshop, the participants become sound researchers and explore the sounds of insects. After an introduction to the topic of environmental and natural sounds, the participants record sounds in nature on the one hand and imitate the sounds of insects with everyday objects they find on their desk, in the kitchen and in the bathroom on the other. They record the sounds independently and learn how to use the recording device (smart phone). Depending on the class size and possibilities, the students can further process the sounds in a music program and creatively change them. The workshop culminates in a small sound installation, which is put together by the music mediator from the sounds of the students.

What does a bee sound like? And a grasshopper? Which sound is higher, which is lower?
