The Sound of Money

This afternoon I had a great time working with Laura Kriefman, choreographer from the Guerrilla Dance Project and dancer for ‘Tap & Pay’, and the musician and composer Lee J Malcolm, on developing a sound track for Tap & Pay, that incorporates the sound of money, a kind of coin composition.

We took a bag of 2000 one penny coins:

and a few other random household objects/instruments:


in order to record the sound of coins, as demonstrated in this 13 second clip from the recording session: Recording the sound of money

I can’t wait to hear the final outcome, mixed in with all sorts of other contagious rhythms to which Laura can tap-dance and perform Tap & Pay live at the V&A’s Digital Design Weekend. Should be fun!
