Here are three Stop Motion films created by participants with artist Alex Hirtzel. The music was created and recorded in 60 minute group work sessions. We explored the elements of a soundtrack.

Sound effects

By the end of the session students will be able to:

Create different types of music using midi instruments, voice and loops
Shape and record their compositions
Below I am sharing some of my creative beginnings so you can see the longer and messier process of trying out, playing with and exploring ideas as they evolve. There are many ways we can use music and sound to tell your stories. I will show you some ideas and we can create new things together as a team.

I was sat with my niece in cafe Nero and we decide to have a go at Euro in Coffee!

Get in touch with comments. I always like to receive feedback.
