Voice-sampled school-bell hits the local news

As part of the project The Artists Close by I created a soundcollage at the local school.

I sampled pupils of Stadil-Vedersø Friskole sounding like school bells, cut-out and organized the recordings and transformed the samples into a choir-sounding instrument. With the sounds I created a soundcollage – or a composition – which was then played in the schoolyard instead of the ordinary school bell that day.

The local newsstation Tv Midt Vest heard about the project and visited the school to get a picture of how the project was working out.
