Music and Art of the Week

Most weeks on our class website, we have a ‘Music and Art of the Week’ feature- this started off as an ‘experiment’ last year and was so popular with the children and their families that we have continued it!

Each week, a child chooses a piece of music and and piece of art

  1. Thanks for sharing this music, I like it. It is similar in a lot of ways to the music I often listen to as it is quite electronic and has a good melody. I love the production on the Gorillaz albums, everything sounds really big whether it is real instruments or electronic ones. The use of speech rather than singing on this piece is unusual I think, it is more of a poem for the verse with singing for the chorus.

    I can hear guitars, electronic and real drums, bass and some synth sounds. I like the way the synths and guitar work together to make the groove, and the hi hats are great (as on most of their music).

    Thanks for sharing this Rory!

  2. I wasn’t able to get to the music Rory but I can see that you have worked really hard with your selection. It is super to see that the class are providing the pieces for the music & art topics. Well done!

  3. Hello Mr Handley and class,

    It has been some time since I have visited one of your Music and Art posts. I was pleasantly surprised to see your post on Pass the Blog. Below is a link to an extended comment about Rory’s questions…
