"Bringing back a sense of wonder and accessibility to music-making” - Jarvis Cocker

Since founding School of Noise two years ago, creator Dan Mayfield and his team have delivered unique musical workshops for young people in an array of locations including museums, hospitals, schools, football stadiums, art centres – and festivals.

Their workshop at WOMAD will include a presentation on sampling noise to create music and a hands-on opportunity to play on sound-sculpting machines.

“The School of Noise is one of those ideas that you just know is right, bringing back a sense of wonder and accessibility to music-making,” says Jarvis Cocker, a big supporter of the project. “Music is organised noise – and organising noise is fun!”
