Music Technology Work Experience 2015

Music Tech Work Experience 2015

On the 1st April the AmmA Centre welcomed this years applicants for music technology Work Experience.  Being April fools day some participants weren’t entirely happy that they weren’t recording Nathan Carter as they had hoped.  The first day was spend familiarizing themselves with the studio enviromnent, testing equipment and recording.  The preparation was worth it as on the second day Armagh based Metal Band “Sentinel” arrived at the centre to record.  It was a loud day, to say the least!   Plenty of thunderous drums and wailing guitars, not for the faint hearted.  The participants done a great job of guiding the band through the session and the track will be available very soon.  Check out the band at  To see what our participants thought check out their video here.

Winter Poems at Kingsmill

A big thumbs up to the students of Kingsmill Primary School for their great work recording their winter poems.  During the workshop the students worked on garageband on the iPad to record their poems and produce a soundtrack. You can watch their behind the scenes video showing the students completing their compositions here.    A huge thank you to all the students involved and Mrs O Hara, Mrs Gamble and the Principal Mr Campbell for their enthusiasm and hospitality.

Landhead Primary home of the Superhero!!

A big thank you to the students of Landhead Primary Ballymoney for their enthusiasm and hard work during the recent Animation and Music workshops facilitated by the AmmA Centre. The students worked on garageband on the iPad to complete an original piece of music and a scripted voiceover to use alongside their animated characters. You can watch their behind the scenes video showing the students completing their animation here. The class were so enthusiastic we even had time to create a creepy Halloween movie. A huge thank you to all the students involved and the staff for their enthusiasm and hospitality (and the best roast chicken dinner ever!!). We hope to see you all again very soon.

Big thanks to the staff and students in St Patricks College Dungannon for all their hard work during the filming of their healthy eating show and science show.  Using iPads the students scripted and filmed a live 3 camera broadcast using collabrocam.  See them hard at rehearsals here.  After the rehearsals it was down to the nerve wrecking prospect of performing live in front of the cameras.  You can see the final results of the “Healthy Eating Show” here and the conclusions of the science experiments here.
