Digital Musical Creations: A Study of individual and collaborative Primary School pupils’ work in Improvisation and Composition
Summary:
In this case study, four 5th graders (primary school) freely improvised, with preset sound tracks, using Audacity software, and composed music individually and collaboratively, thematically oriented towards mental illness. Thus, they developed their creativity, aiming, in parallel, at breaking related prejudices and negative stereotypes. The research questions focused both on the process of composition and on pupils’ products. Findings with regards to the process are related to strategies adopted in collaborative compositions, group roles formed and the weaving of stories alongside these compositions. Findings with regards to the products relate to a) the duration of each work, b) the total number of inserted sounds, c) the number of sounds used in each work, d) the use of editing functional characteristics of the program and e) the creation or non-creation of a story during or after the composition.
