Home made instruments
Using items we found at home we made our own instruments. I invited my partner to join in at my home to made get the equipment and to practice our music performance. Although there wasn’t a prize I was told that we were the top performers and my teacher really liked our performance. We used the following items:
- Wobbling acrylic sheet, that we had from various home-made art work we did in the past, which we shook to make the sound of rain.
- We also used a wooden hammer to hit the acrylic sheet to make the sound of thunder.
- Using a open tube, which we spun around creating a sound similar to the sound of the wind.
- We also got some used paper wrappings from my father’s office and crumbled it to make it sound like crunching leaves when someone walks in the forest.
