Sustainable Music Factory workshops - April 26th, 2007

…with history, art and music.

With the aid of solar-charged tools, recycled materials can be artfully
transformed into
diatonic music instruments and used to perform stress-reducing
busking-style concerts.
There is a connection to art and history, too. Students will
manufacture tuned musical
instruments, made from recycled materials, using digital
orchestral-tuning devices,
powered by earth-friendlier, recycled batteries. After making their
artistic or creative
musical instruments, they will perform concerts, with flair.
Solar-powered stress meters
will be used before and after a concert. Kids will research the history
of musical
instruments. With sufficient hours attended, each student will have a
complete set of
instruments capable of playing human carillon concerts, and be able to
lead a group.
