Year 6 STEAM Solar Beats

For last weeks STEAM exhibition, year 6 created 2 pieces of music using a solar panel. We connected a solar panel to a guitar amplifier then interfered with the signal using an infra red beam from a TV remote control. We then recorded the sounds using garage band on the iPads using the sample function. Students were then able to manipulate the sound by dropping or raising the pitch, adding reverb or delay. All of these samples were then combined to create a whole class composition.
