The Lightning Shakers

By Chance

First I took two water bottles and painted them bright colors. I put two lightning bolts on them. I filled the first bottle with rice and the second with jelly beans.

The bottle with the jelly beans has a low pitch and if you shake it harder it has a loud dynamic. The bottle with rice has a high pitch when you shake it light it has a soft dynamic. The timbre in the rice shaker sounds like rain and the jelly bean shaker timbre sounds like thunder.

It took three hours to complete my instrument. The material used for this project are paint, two water bottles, rice and jelly beans. If you shake them lightly they sound soft and if you shake them hard they are loud.
