Simon Roberts, Carmel College
The National Curriculum Programme of Study for Computing at Key Stage 3 says that pupils should 'understand how sound data (among other types) can be represented and manipulated digitally.'
JES is a set of tools that allows the user to manipulate a range of files including images, audio and video. In this workshop we will explore how sound is made up and can be manipulated to meet the needs of the end user. JES allows us to better understand the sound effects processing algorithms that we might have heard across radio, podcasts and music production.
Relevant Key Stages: KS3, KS4
