Sound artwork

Workshop On going

In this workshop, pupils are immersed in the fascinating world of sound!

They will discover interactively and playfully what sound actually is and how it affects their senses. Join them on a journey of discovery and unravelling the secrets behind sound! What makes certain sounds soothing while others get on your nerves? As a teacher, explore these questions using a lesson plan.

 For the second part, a special guest joins the class: creator Jan-Willem Otto! He will bring along his self-designed drum robots with which pupils will create sound artworks, further explore the world of sound and be amazed by the incredible sounds that everyday objects can produce.

 While creating a sound artwork, pupils are involved in programming a piece of music, designing the artwork and its technical construction. They work on 21st-century skills such as creativity, ICT skills, problem-solving and collaboration.

Jan-Willem Otto developed this workshop in collaboration with Nieuwe Veste, STRP Education and Het Brederocollege. Jan-Willem Otto, designer and musician, builds interactive installations and musical instruments in which the user becomes the artist. Jan-Willem also believes it is important to design educational programmes that teach you to be creative with technology.
