Connect switching devices so they play different motifs

Help me realise that motifs can be joined up in different ways to make music

  • Set up two or three switches (physical or virtual,using a beam or touchscreen) that play motifs that potentially fit together well, using the services of a trained musician if necessary
  • Take ideas from Soundabout Music Tracks: Motifs
  • Show me how to use the switches
  • Then show me how to join the motifs together to make new ‘songs’
  • Encourage me to sing along as I operate the switches, and then see if I can do it on my own
  • How many switches can I manage – three, four or more?
  • With help from a trained musician if necessary, show me how to play the same fragments of melody on a keyboard
  • Make recordings for me to enjoy later with others
