Dr Who inspires musical event
A TIMELORD and a Tardis swooped on a school for an unusual musical performance.
A group of students from Meldreth Manor School, met soundbeam “guru” David Jackson, who played a variety of music and re-enacted scenes from the popular BBC 1 series Dr Who.
David, who has worked for Radio 4, was supported by David Cross on his electronic violin for the performance which marked the school’s 15th annual music day and featured a colourful backdrop of daleks and a Tardis.
Soundbeam is a device which uses sensor technology to translate body movement into digitally generated sound.
It enables pupils to move in front of it and create different sounds. It can be pre-programmed to produce range of sounds, including voices, the noise of a car engine, or dalek sounds.

We are grateful to David Jackson for his continued support and for helping create such a fun day.“
