The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

Turn your house into a musical instrument in a two-part workshop with artist and musician Lucy Cheesman, as part of Site Gallery's online WEB/SITE programme. If you missed the live-streamed workshops, scroll down to watch them back at any time.

In the first session (9th May) you will learn the basics of code and how to make music with open source software FoxDot. In this session Lucy will give you samples you need to make your own melodies.

You will then collect your own samples using the sound recorders on your mobile phone from around your house. You will receive worksheets to give you examples to get you started.

In the second session (16th May) you'll import the sounds you've collected into your own compositions.

By the end of the workshop, participants will learn the basics of coding, sampling and be able to make their own songs and melodies.

These workshops are open to all ages and family collaborations are encouraged, however younger participants (8-12 years old) may need support to take part.

Requirements:
Access to a basic Mac or Windows computer that is connected to or has a built in ‘qwerty’ keyboard. All software will run on most machines made 2010 and onwards.
