The Arts and Crafts teachers and the Music teachers from Martí Dot have worked together to produce recycled sustainable instruments. The students have painted palettes, bottles, plastic containers, cans, etc. to create musical instruments. That way they have used their artistic and musical creativity and they have given a new use to waste. Here you can see some of the results.
The instruments have been exposed in the high school hall and students can play them freely whenever they feel like it.
Students had to find the correct pitch for each bottle by adding a specific amount of water to play the diatonic scale
The objective here was to estimate the correct length of each string to produce the desired pitch and achieve a C scale
The students reused cardboard tubes and they had to use pins and needles to pierce them and cross them inside. Then they added lentils and rice in order to reproduce the water sound. That way they produced their rainsticks. The sticks had to be decorated with different colours. If the sound was lowpitched it was decorated with cold colours. However, if the sound was highpitched they decorated it with warm colours
