What happens in the video?
To do this activity, you’ll need a webcam, a room with enough space to move around, and the internet browser Google Chrome if you haven’t already got it.
Listen to Tom’s song, ‘Making Sounds at Home’, then open a new window in Chrome and go to https://creatability.withgoogle.com/body-synth/.
Your webcam will open and you will be able to see yourself – start moving your body to make music! Colin will give you a tutorial on how to get started.
See what kind of songs and music you can make.
