Stats in Sound - Day 1

Today saw the much awaited arrival of the first day in our Stats in Sound project working with Community Music Wales. After a brief introduction about the project the class was split into three groups and assigned an expert from the Community Music team.

The pupils then got the chance to explore and try out the different types of equipment that they would be using for the project including cameras and sound recording equipment.

After a short while getting used to everything they needed to use the groups moved outside into our fabulous school grounds and began a ‘sound walk’, taking recordings of any natural sounds they heard and others they could generate using natural materials. They also took as many photographs of interesting natural things that they found on their travels.

In the afternoon, each group got the opportunity to edit their media from the morning; cropping and enhancing photographs, looking through video clips and selecting and editing the appropriate parts and listening to audio files and editing them together as a soundscape.

The whole class had a fantastic day and thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to learn new skills using modern technologies. We now cannot wait for Day 2 on Friday!
