Hi, my name is Jeremy Barton, and i am the driving force behind The Sonic Kitchen.
I am a musician, sound designer, digital artist, and educator.
I have been involved with sound production since 2007, recording albums in Australia and the U.S.A.
During this time I provided sound design for pop artists. I also worked at a sound production company
that exposed me to places such as The Sydney Opera House and Fox Studios.
Yes, I’ve been around the block!
You may ask, So why the change from professional production to working with kids?
I changed my course because my life goals changed!
The Sonic Kitchen was born in early 2016, and it was a very steep learning curve.
I soon caught on to what centres were looking for and i started to build incursions and programs to suite there needs.
You may of already latched on the word Sonic which is synonymous with Sound, this is used because the bulk of our services are related to sound education, exploring sound as a sensation or sound as a stimulus (i.e physical movement).
However, the range of our services has grown, now including electrical science & light science!
The Sonic Kitchen is STEAM amplified !
All of our services are interactive, using science and technology to excite the creative spark.
A unique aspects about us is this, most of the apps the kids will interact with are actually built by us!!
Fusing together Art & Science, our colourful incursions introduce kids to our technologies that enable quirky voice transformations to science experiments where kids actually get to see sound!! (please check out Seeing Sound!)
All 5 EYLF outcomes and 5 MTOP outcomes are present in our incursions and activities
(please check out the Resources page!) We always strive for uniqueness and excellence, in turn, encouraging kids to reflect the same trailblazing spirit. In the mean time, feel free to read through the testimonials.
We sincerely hope to visit your centre very soon!
