Found Sounds: Music from The Mundane

Moir, Zack



adam patrick bell


This recipe encourages learners to develop their critical and analytic listening skills by seeking and recording sounds in their environment as a basis for music composition. The use of unorthodox (i.e. not inherently musical) sounds in a compositional context develops critical listening, creative use of recorded material, and encourages the exploration of the sonic and functional possibilities afforded by DAW technologies in working with and manipulating audio as a basis for composition.
