Dalkey School Project Session 9 with Eamon Sweeney, musician: 6 June 2014 – Composition

In this session we worked exclusively on our chime bar composition: what patterns we would use; in what order.

The patterns we are employing are used when sitting in a circle with one chime bar each:
(i) in a clockwise patter
(ii) in an anti-clockwise pattern
(iii) in order of ascending height
(iv) order of birthdays occurring in the year
(v) girls only
(vi) boys only
(vii) simultaneous note clusters spelling out the date of our upcoming performance: 20/06/2014
