NOMAD: Invented

Pupils of St. Christopher's National School & Crash Ensemble
Nomad: Invented

During each BIG BANG festival, we invite professional musicians to create a musical performance together with a group of children. This year, using ‘inventing’ as a playful a theme, internationally renowned Crash Ensemble are collaborating with 5th class children from St. Christopher’s National School. 

Over the course of several workshops, the children will invent instruments and sounds from everyday objects, and use these to create new compositions. Visual scores will be drawn by the children who will work with Crash Ensemble to imagine, interpret and shape their ideas to form the final audio-visual piece. Using home recordings and video footage, Crash Ensemble’s videographer and sound engineer are editing together this short film capturing their music for you to enjoy from home.

Composed and performed by: 5th Class Pupils of St. Christopher’s National School, Dublin and members of Crash Ensemble.
