Finding a voice through Technology

Lead Creative school scheme: A school to school project

Thanks to funding from the Welsh Arts Council, pupils from Ysgol Crug Glas and Morriston Special teaching facility, took part in a joint school to school project.

During the course of a few weeks, a remix of ‘Do not go gentle into that good night’ by Dylan Thomas was recreated, finishing with a live performance of the piece at Cinema and Co. Pupils helped to create the music using instruments, microphones and the use of an IPad ‘thumb jam’ app. Pupils also enjoyed hearing the sound of their own voices on the microphone. As part of the project, an artist visited Ysgol Crug Glas to work alongside the pupils and they created a range of black and white mark making pictures that were turned into animation and motion graphics to accompany the remix.
