Collett School

CS Pupils and Steven McDaniel

Steven McDaniel

Sometimes I work with people whose musical talents are less obvious, but nevertheless provide rich material to work with. I had a day working with pupils at the Collett Special and MLD School in Hemel Hempstead. Everyone had the chance to choose a musical instrument and to invent short fragments of music, which I recorded. Back at the Planet Zyz Studio I used those fragments to create three pieces of music one for each session.

Below is the CD given to the Collett School. After an introduction, each piece is proceeded by a short explanation that includes the fragments of music the students created (the 'elements') that I used in the final pieces.
