EdLab Challenge: Pop Up Performance Stall

Most people want to be a performer in one way or other but they may be shy. Can you bring people out of their shell by recording their voice but adding effects to it before you play it back? One example is described below. But you may have your own ideas for what to do for this challenge which involves running a stall.

EdLab was supported by MMU education students to create a pop up activity at the Poetry Together Trailblazer Event. We asked the young people (and older ones too)…

Would you like us to turn you into a Robot?


We had a range of different short poems on technology available to read into a microphone and record into the Audacity programme. An effect was then applied (echo) to make them robotic. The results are below.
