Cultural Infusion and the DEECD partnered to create Sound Infusion, a free, online, interactive learning experience that blends music making and cultural awareness. This web 2.0 tool has made it to finals of the Australia and New Zealand internet awards. – Fingers crossed!
Students can create their own songs from hundreds of different samples, save, share and discuss their work online with their classmates as well as students from other schools. Sound Infusion in Action Sound Infusion runs on the web, requiring no downloads or installed software.
Sound Infusion is perfect for users of all ages, it allows users to make music from the hundreds of royalty-free original sound loops from all over the world. The mixer is in the webspace and it allows students to mix up new and interesting music – their own creation to use freely with their own creative commons license. About the award
