- Cars, barking dogs, rain?

Lesson 2: Composing Challenge
John Cage was interested in new ways of making music. Here is a short video of him performing with some very unusual instruments. Watch and listen carefully!
The Composer Challenge – House Walks
Create your own composition using sounds as you walk through your home.
You can record your composition on a phone, so you’ll have the sounds and the visuals to think about.
Start at the front door for 10 seconds.
Visit 2 separate rooms in the house – 1 minute per room
Each room should have at least 1 long sound, 1 short sound, 1 quiet sound and 1 musical sound.
Finish at the back door or back window for 10 seconds
Your Composition Sheet
Find your sounds and practice how to make them. How long is each sound? How many times will you make it? You can use the worksheet attached to write out your ideas.
Here is a composition sheet.
Keep exercising each day. Try this week’s challenge or come up with your own!
