Introducing Conductive Music and Momocuri

When Art and Technology come together in a creative way, the result is STEAM: a powerful vehicle for education, innovation and curiosity that brings together Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics. Together, these disciplines captivate the interest of very different people, and their combined drive can reach out towards unexpected directions.

The playful and collaborative learning experiences of Conductive Music mixes these subjects with their special sauce: music! Conductive Music is a not for profit organisation, specialising in working with children who experience barriers to their personal and educational development and lack regular access to artistic opportunities.

Momocuri Event

Momocuri is a cross-disciplinary, creative learning project, designed to inspire children from challenging backgrounds into unexpected learning and career pathways. Using dramatic stories and music from international cultural heritage, combined with creative coding, the teachers will guide children to create their own original musical video games.

Learn how to plan, code and compose your very own video game in just one week!

In a series of colourful interactive online sessions, we’ll use a spooky tale from Ancient Japan to show how storytelling, coding, and music can come together to create a fabulous RPG!! Then, it’s time to get creative and make your own!

By the end of the workshop, participants will have created their own musical game demo video, and take away all the skills and (free) software they need to make more!

– You will design your personal story with the help of professional storyteller Laura Sampson.
– You will turn this story into a video game with chief coder and technologist Dr Enrico Bertelli.
– You will now set the tone of your story by adding your music with Dr Yui Shikakura, expert musician and researcher.
