Combine learning about writing music with the exclusive opportunity to discover Melbourne’s very own Federation Bells.
The Federation Bells, a large musical sculpture located at Birrarung Marr along the Yarra River, was commissioned in 2001 to commemorate the centenary of Federation. Since then they have been used in many exciting music and sound design projects with composers and musicians from all over the globe. Their spectacular sound always attracts tourists and city visitors when they play three times daily.
In this exciting workshop, students will use computer software to create original compositions for the Bells, and discuss the best compositional techniques for such a unique instrument. Students will then head over to Birrarung Marr to visit the Bells and hear their compositions played live.
