A sound collage and musical school bell installation

Friskoleklokken is a sound collage/installation created as part of the artist-in-residence project Kunstneren Tæt På (The Artist Close By).

It is a musical school bell made from recordings of schoolchildren at the local school in Stadil-Vedersø attempting to imitate their own school bell. These recordings were then chopped, processed and transformed into a choir-sounding software instrument.

When assembled in a musical manner, it becomes a collage of sounds.

For one day at the school, this alternative school bell replaced the regular bell, providing the students with a unique and enjoyable experience in sound design and meeting a real-life artist.. Check out this article for more information.
