Scenario no. 9: Children moving in spontaneous ways in sensorized space

Suitable for: nursery, kindergarten and primary school, children with special needs  (special  schools, children’s hospitals)

Short Description:
Viewpoint of the child
Children’ movements create sounds that they can listen to. A reflexive interaction starts when the children start to explore ways to modify the sounds by means their body movements. They learn to explore the sound sources and their qualities in terms of timbre, pitch, pulse, rhythm, melodic contour, dynamics. They produce sound variations on the basis of movements of different parts of their bodies and directions in space.

Viewpoint of the teacher
The teacher acts as a scaffold by organising classroom settings, and triggering situations.

Pedagogical Implementation
Children can compose body movements and gestures to compose associated musical sequences.
