Fancy exploring a new world of sound to make your own music?
Our friends at De Montfort University have launched EARS2, a fabulous online resource that introduces young people and their educators to the world of making music with sounds.
Known as electroacoustic, electronic or sound-based music, it is one of the most exciting new forms of music that came out of the twentieth century and is thriving today around the globe. Much of what can do with sounds has been made possible due to the development in technologies which we can use to make music.
EARS 2 offers users the chance to learn about all aspects of this music in an integrated, user friendly and enjoyable manner and the platform is full of ideas, tutorials and a free, downloadable tool for creating your own audio compositions.
You can explore EARS2 here.
