The show is a lively, interactive presentation, for up to 100 pupils and lasts for one and a quarter hours. The presentation is followed by smaller workshop sessions, each of 45 minutes duration and for no more than a single class at a time. The DeeP Sound Show covers:
The show is delivered through song, demonstration, discourse, discussion, performing, composing and appraising. The interest and enjoyment of the show are enhanced through seeing the "one-man band" in action and by participating in the recording process.
The complex processes of sound as forms of energy and the physiology of the human hearing mechanism are demonstrated through lively interactive discussion and demonstration. Catchy, original songs (specially composed for the show) are taught to help "fix" these difficult concepts.
The DeeP Sound Show meets requirements of the English National Curriculum Programmes of Study in music, science and ICT.
This show makes use of
and pupils embark on a fascinating listening voyage. Beginning with acoustic, unamplified sounds pupils are introduced to ways of controlling and changing sounds including sound processing, synthesis, the complex layering of live samples and the use of a range of MIDI controllers (including movement sensors).
Following the presentation, smaller groups of pupils will have the opportunity to take part in practical workshops and record their own music, which will be transferred to compact disc. The cd will be a source of interest and pride for the pupils. It will also be a record of evidence of work for teachers, and other interested parties, in this under-exploited, yet required, area of the music curriculum.
