Hi! It’s Saturday, April 20, 2013 and time for Music at ClickSchooling!
Age Range: All (with parental supervision)
Become the conductor of a group of animated human sound machines and express your musicality through this free, fun, and easy to use interactive program. Sponsored by a graphic design and mixed media studio, Incredibox lets you record your music composition to share with friends.
When you get to the site watch the short introduction that demonstrates how to use the program. Once the intro is over, the program will be ready to begin. You’ll see animated male characters without shirts. Drag and drop different effects, beats, melodies, chorus, and voices (from icons located below the animation screen). As you drop them onto the character, it will dress the character in a new outfit and demonstrate the effect. Continue until you create a musical piece that appeals to you.
Use the small icons above the music screen to record your music, shuffle the program (automate it), remove the sounds (start over), and change the settings. It takes a little experimentation to get proficient at creating compositions, but the fun is in exploring and testing the possibilities.
Note: There is a big “Play Now” button located at the bottom of the screen that opens a page where you can download a game program. It was difficult to tell if it was an advertisement – but it’s not part of the Incredibox program. My advice is to avoid it.
