Sample Audio : All The Way (Bluey & Ski's Incognito Remix)

This is a project I was asked to do at my son's school in Hackney.
I asked the children in his class (7-8 year olds) to bring in a sound made either with an object or their body.
I recorded each sound individually in groups of 5 or 6 children, and then composed a short piece of music using these sounds.
I used examples such as John Cage and The KLF to explain how music can be thought of in lots of different ways, and also to how we should appreciate the sounds around us.
While we were recording in a separate room, the rest of the class listened to Holst's 'The Planets' and drew amazing coloured pictures in response to the music. They also drew a picture to represent each of their individual sounds.

Here are a few favourite deep jazz tracks that I've managed to search out over the years..

Check out the amazing Jewish Prayer Ceremony lead by Herbie Hancock, alongside Bobby Hutcherson's beautiful piece performed on a balcony overlooking the Californian hills..

I'm currently developing a brand new course for Point Blank Online Music College. Please take a look at the Promo Video below and also visit the brochure page for detailed info.

Meanwhile here is the blurb....

When producing a track, we've all experienced that point when you can't get any further and need some extra inspiration. Electronic Music Composition (EMC) will help you overcome this obstacle by showing you how to develop the musical aspects of your tracks in an easy to understand way without getting bogged down in scales and theory.
