Our current topic is all about the science of sound and the creation of music.
We began our topic by investigating how sound is made. We discovered that three things are needed for sound to be produced:
1. Something needs to vibrate
2. These vibrations, or sound waves, need a medium, such as air or water, to travel through.
3. Something needs to detect the sound. This is usually an ear but can be a microphone or recording device.
We explored the classroom for objects that we could make vibrate in order to produce sound.
The Sound Artist
We found out about artists that use music as their inspiarion to creat works of art. We had a go ourselves. We listened to an "up beat" piece of music and drew the shapes and colours that came into our imaginations. What do you think?
