Soundmoves Music Movies


SOUNDMOVES is a unique music and movement project for primary school classes which is produced as part of the SCO Wester Hailes Residency. 

During a series of workshops, each class invents their own narrative and creates a music and movement piece which brings together ideas from the whole group. Every child is involved in the piece, either as a musician or as part of the choreographed movement, and in 2019 six classes from Clovenstone, Canal View and Sighthill Primary Schools made the short films which you can see here! We proudly present:
Spider by Primary 4/5, Clovenstone Primary School
Shadow by Primary 5, Clovenstone Primary School
Wind Carrying Memories by Primary 4/5, Sighthill Primary School
Monster by Primary 4, Sighthill Primary School
The Cave by Primary 4b, Canal View Primary School
Dreaming by Primary 5a, Canal View Primary School

Soundmoves Music Movies were created by P4 & P5 pupils from Clovenstone, Canal View and Sighthill Primary Schools between November 2018 and June 2019 with Matilda Brown (Composer), Ana Almeida (Music & Movement Specialist), Sandy Butler (Videographer), Aisling O'Dea (Violin), Joanna Duncan (Violin), Donald Gillan (Cello), Niamh Molloy (Cello), Harriet Davidson (Cello), William Stafford (Clarinet), and Phil Hague (Percussion).
