A class of Year 6 have worked to create large paintings in response to Stravinsky's Firebird music. They worked in pairs to create compositions which featured shapes, colours, forms and the paintings depicted a mood which they felt described the music. In music , the children made their own whole class composition inspired by the rhythms, pulses and drones from the Firebird. We had a vision to combine the paintings and music and did so using the school's Green Screen technology . We sought to show the children how processes in composing music and paintings can connect , how they are similar and how they can be brought together to create a finished expression.
