Playing 'calm' made us relaxed.... even if we weren't that calm at first.
Playing 'angry' was noisy but fun.
'Jealousy' was the most surprising : we all ended up laughing, sneaking a go on each others' instruments, and being playful.
What we discovered was that, as a group, playing music could change our mood. It wasn't just that we could represent a feeling through sound - it was more complex than that.
Because we were listening, and responding, and initiating, together we could build pieces of music that could make us happier, calmer, or surprised.
Playing 'angry' didn't make us angry though. Actually - we felt better afterwards!
Later, Josh started to play the piano. Here's how it sounded. How would you describe this?
