CJHSdigitalmusic : Hallway Symphony
Hallway Symphony
​In a school consisting of over 1,000 kids, the hallways create a cacophony of yelling and shouting, and adds to the students' already stressful day. ​

Using the MakeyMakey (an interactive USB keyboard) and some basic supplies, we created a giant layer of mats that created pleasant chimes when they were walked on by students.
