Sea Music

We've been listening carefully to the sounds of the sea and trying to recreate them using tuned and untuned instruments.  We started by listening carefully and thinking of descriptive words and phrases to describe what a calm and stormy sea sounded like.  We experimented with different types of instruments and different ways of playing them in order to make stormy sounds, and calm sounds.

Finally, we listened to a piece of music composed by Benjamin Britten and drew the images that it painted in our minds.  You can listen too by clicking on the link below or click here to find out all about it and watch it being played by an orchestra.

Benjamin Britten 'Storm'
