Ad Wammes, composer
Compositions: Vreemde vogels
Vreemde vogels ( Strange birds) is a music project for pupils of the primary school.
This project is produced by Kunstgebouw and is a part of the program "Art in progress".
DVD and CD together with the teachers manual form the lesson material of this project.
The theme is "Sounds of birds". Throughout the ages people are enchanted by the beautiful sounds and melodies of birds and many composers are inspired by it.

The project is focused on the structure of music and how you can make your own music.
You can listen to the works of different composers which are inspired by the sounds of birds. Ad Wammes shows us how he composes.Johan van der Krey shows us the studio of the conservatory of The Hague in which the sounds of the web tool are made. By aid of this web tool the pupils can make their own compositions.
