Walker Beats, Rhymes and Life

As part of the ongoing Storyweavers project at Rivendell School, sound engineer and musician, Michael Moebus, has been working with students from all programs in developing a wide range of sound pieces to be presented at the final installation and exhibition in November.

In Walker, Michael has been coming in for regular weekly workshops, and the process largely involves composing music or spoken words pieces using music software program Logic, as well as a midi keyboard. It is great to see the students engaging in this creative process and finding alternative ways to express themselves, particularly in relation to this year’s theme of “My Place”.

“It’s always a pleasure to do music workshops in Walker, and this week it was fun to work on some drum and bass.” – Michael Moebus

Michael worked with students new to Walker and it was amazing to see such a positive shift in their demeanour as they responded so openly and enthusiastically to the opportunity. One new student said that, “it was really worth coming to do.”

Having Michael visit Walker for this project gave the students a fantastic change of pace to class  – literally, we had some drum and bass banging out at 140 beats per minute!
