After putting all the elements of my noisemaker together this is what it ended up as.
While assembling the noise maker I instantly realised that I had made it too low and the chains
too short. As a result they couldn’t move enough to create a good sound as the objects on the
chain only move about 5cm. Some of the chains also hit the ground – I liked this as it gave a
new dimension to the noise created. A ‘tinkling’ sound followed by a ‘clunk’.
I added plastic bags so the end of the noisemaker in the hope it gave the noise more direction
and amplified it. It changed the sound but only slightly. I also discovered that the plastic bag could
be activated to make sound if I ran my fingers down it a loud ‘screeching’ sound – similar to when
you rub a balloon. But I could feel that the plastic wouldn’t have lasted long being used in that way.
Options to explore:
- finding new ways to activate the noise maker
- look in to heightening the structure
