Middle School students at Kolin Koulu were skateboarding in their gymnasium yesterday. But this was not your average skateboard. It was part of a presentation entitled “Musique Concrete”: a combination of sports, music, and interactivity which transformed the skateboard into a music-making device.
Students participated in the music process by rolling around the floor with the skateboard. This helped them determine how the sound was triggered.
The boy sitting on the board (in the photo above) was the first volunteer. He told me that he was a big fan of heavy metal music.
It was a delightful afternoon. There were lots of sun spots on the floor.
The kids were cool.
..and so were the teachers
