Cork music education programme asking young people to get creative in making music from home
Music Generation Cork City is asking people to get creative in an initiatove to make sounds from their homes into music.

Music Generation Cork City (MGCC) is calling for local young musicians to get involved in an initiative to make music from home.

Using only sounds that can be made from items in the household, MGCC are asking people to get curious about their home environments and to explore what sounds can be made into music.

People are asked to make a video of their found sound to be included in the final collaborative track called Lockdown Soundz.

MGCC works in partnership with community based musicians and music organisations to bring music education into the lives of children and young people across Cork city.

Using the Community Education process, programmes are being made available in the places where children live, play, and go to school, bringing opportunities for music-making into the heart of Cork’s communities.

MGCC offers eight different programmes including traditional Irish music, brass and wind, rock and pop, rap and musical technologies, to name a few.

Musicians can submit their selected sound to lockdownsoundz@gmail.com by Saturday, April 11 at 12pm.

One sound is to be submitted per person and the sound has to be heard clearly in the clip.

MGCC has asked participants to be mindful of their own privacy and the privacy of others in the household. Participants have the option to show their face in the video or not.
