Junk Trunk…let's turn junk into funk!
If you’re coming to see Owen and Olly in any of our Junk Trunk concerts or Garbage Band workshops then watch this space for downloadable instructions on how to make some cool instruments out of things you find around the house!
In the meantime let’s get experimenting with sound! Here’s a mission for this week:
Try putting different amounts of water in a glass bottle (grown-ups might need to join in with this) and blowing across the top to get a note. What happens to the sound when you put more water in, or tip some out?
Your bottle might sound great, but it probably doesn’t look the part yet…why not go a step further and collect other bottles, fill them with different water levels and create your own bottle xylophone! To jazz it up a bit, you could dye the water different colours – we love this rainbow-inspired example!
