Loyola program 2013

This project exhibited 30 wind chimes made by participants of our pilot Chimes for Change program. Collaborating with Loyola High School sound art teacher Steven Speciale and visual artist James Peterson, students built wind chimes out of recycled materials, expressing a sustainability issue through their piece. Then they learned how to compose electronic music using the mobile application Yellofier. Finally, students created their own song in the Yellofier app, using only sounds derived from their wind chime. The results were displayed at Soundwalk 2013, one of the country’s biggest sound art exhibits, in Long Beach, California. Attendees viewed the collection of chimes and could access each artists’ electronic song and artists statement by scanning a nearby QR code with their smart phone.
