DA#23 – Audio Experimentation with Watermusic

Is it possible to make your own version of Händel’s water music with water sounds?

Audio puzzles and sound experimentations are suitable for children from the age of 3 and a lot of fun. First, children can search for random sounds in the environment and record them with a simple recording app. While listening, the children can guess together what they hear. At home, parents and children look for special water sounds, create and record them. In kindergarten, children can talk about their experiences with water sounds and listen to Händel’s original “water music”. Inspired by classical music, children can mix live water sounds in the kindergarten with the recording of the classical music. In the end they create their own version of Händel’s masterpiece.
