The laboratory is addressed to a group of trumpet students. In particular, the main aim was the integration of the so called non-conventional sounds produced by the instruments in an Electric-Acoustic composition especially made for students with different instrumental abilities and musical competences. Retracing the intuitions of compositors such as Cage, Mauricio Kagel, etc. who have the merit of having redefined the role of environmental sound, the laboratory exploited the sound resources which students had the opportunity to explore submerging themselves in a tailor-made electric-acoustic environment. This choice was motivated by a pedagogical approach aiming at enhancing the artistic aspect of the didactic experience and turn it into a means of aesthetic education.
The technical realisation requires: a digital recorder, a granular synthesizer, a software for audio editing, a sampled sound collection, an amplification system and possibly a bass drum, and a temple block.
The physical space must comfortably contain the group of students in order to favour optimal listening.
The skills, goals and training objectives selected by the teacher for this experience are shown below.
