The ‘Sounds of the Globe’ project is a global initiative for learners in G4-12 to explore, create and share musical ideas with a diverse range of audiences using technology as a tool for artistic expression. The project is designed to have two phases with an optional third phase. During the first phase, learners are encouraged to explore the sounds of their own cities, then record and share them via cloud-based platforms such as Soundcloud.com. In the second phase, learners will have the opportunity to listen to and work with sound samples submitted from other places of the world, and create a composition focusing on musical context, form/structure, timbre, and texture. Lastly, participating classrooms will have the option to connect via the internet share the creative process and story behind their compositions.
