The Sound Hunter

Stedelijk Museum
Workshop for Children
24 Feb 14:00 — 16:00 Fedde ten Berge

The Sound Hunter workshop for children with the sound artist Fedde ten Berge will teach participants how to produce digital and analogue sounds. Sound is an art form that brings together technology and crafts. By interacting with eight different sound objects, the participants will experience the workings of sensors, microphones and small computers. They will learn how to make sound samples with water, a tree trunk, as well as electromagnetic fields, feathers and snares. By transforming these sounds with a built-in-computer, participants can explore completely new worlds of sound. Everybody is invited to experience the sound experimentation station (KES), individually and in a group, and learn how to combine different layers of sound to make a song. That will teach us the importance of listening and attention for each other while making music. The workshop is developed in collaboration with Kunst Centraal.

The workshop will take place in Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam. More information here (in Dutch!).

The workshop is part of Re-Imagine Europe, co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.
