The Sound Garden project is officially completed! We've built a playground of giant musical instruments using recycled materials in Belmay Primary School, Perth.The project explores the science of sound and its relationship with the natural environment; how elements like water, wind and heat affect sound. The project involved three other surrounding schools: South East Metropolitan Language Development Centre, the Carson Street Independent School and Belmont City College, whose year 11 apprenticeship students will assisted with the construction of the instruments. Our artists in residence are musician and instrument-maker Mark Cain, and visual artist Calvin Chee.
In addition to the creation of the Sound Garden, we're providing a curriculum-linked music education program that will demonstrate the ability of music to achieve learning outcomes in other key learning areas like Science. A tailor-made Professional Development course will focus on the science of sound and the social studies aspect of music and instruments around the world.
