Cork's young musicians create innovative music video using sounds from lockdown

Music Generation Cork City (MGCC) has unveiled the first video in its Lockdown Soundz series after asking young people to submit a sound of their choice from around the house during lockdown.

Lockdown Soundz is an initiative which was born out of the need for musical creativity and expression in the midst of the current pandemic.

The initiative was inspired by the editing skills of MGCC musician educator, JJ Riordan and his own found sounds videos.

MGCC realised this was something the young people on their programmes could easily get involved in from their own homes and the call was put out for people to record and send a random sound of their choice from lockdown.

The response to the call was met with a swathe of video clip submissions which have resulted in the Found Sounds music video compilation released this week.

The final video includes sounds made from a blender, glass bottles, tissue paper, stones, chalk, and scissors, to name a few.

Details of the next Lockdown Soundz project have been released and more information can be found on the MGCC website www.musicgenerationcorkcity.com
