Surround Sound in East Lothian

Following on from a successful pilot scheme in Summer 2010, I have begun delivering a new series of Surround Sound workshops in East Lothian primary schools.

These creative music workshops explore the sounds of nature and how they influence music, culminating in a group performance using natural found objects from beaches and forests.

The workshop lasts about 1.5 hours and is part of the council Arts Education Natural Links programme.

Here’s a recording of performance from a P5 class at Law Primary School last year.

It is hoped that Surround Sound can be adapted and incorporated into a wider school project involving the local community when I return to Law in May. More details on that when they become available.
