South Dublin County Sound Walk

AltEnts have staged a Children’s Music festival each June since 2007. Covid-19 restrictions mean that the 2021 festival cannot feature live workshops and performances in participating schools, 'South Dublin County Sound Walk' is a project that has been developed to allow for the festival to continue online, and to engage with its festival cohort this year.

The project will see Participants from 5th and 6th class in Scoil Chrónáin and Rathfarnham Parish National School working with composer Robert Coleman to make a sound art piece comprising the sounds of their everyday lives, interspersed with personal observations, conversations and random sound pieces captured in their homes and on their lockdown walks with family and friends. Robert will be assisted by one of SubSounds lead mentors Elton Mullally, and by sound engineer and musician Bryan Fleming.

The South Dublin Sound Walk will consist of a series of eight workshops with three primary school classes and their teachers.   There will be approximately 80 to 90 children taking part.

The finished product will be launched on our various social media platforms on the 12th of June as part of Cruinniú na nÓg 2021, the national day of free creativity for children.
