THE nation's wackiest musician was in town to share his musical wisdom with local school children.
Bill Drummond, former member of 90's group KLF, one of the seminal bands of the British acid house movement, has spent the last week giving workshops to seven Kirklees schools.
Each school recorded part of a piece of music for Mr Drummond's project, named The 17, before he put the seven pieces together.
And yesterday, the children gathered in the Town Hall yesterday afternoon to listen to the final recording.
However, perhaps the most bizarre part of the exercise was the fact that the recording was then immediately deleted, and only those involved in the performance were allowed to listen to it.
Drummond explained: "The concept behind The 17 focuses on the idea that there is no history behind music and there are no traditions to follow.
"It is about starting all over again with everything and exploring the idea that everything could be deleted from memory."
He added: "The music that members of The 17 make should sound like music would if it was starting all over again.
"This may be impossible, but it shouldn't stop any of us from trying."
After the recording - part of the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival - the children were asked to write down how the sound made them feel.
One student said: "It was quite relaxing but also very weird at the same time."
Drummond, best known for burning £1m as an artistic statement, has travelled Europe over the past year to develop this idea and introduce it to the public.
He said: "The idea of a piece of music never existing again simply fascinates me and it is a concept I chose to put forward to the public and share my beliefs."
The Festival runs from November 17 to 26.
Drummond will be hosting introductions to The 17 for the public to attend at The North Light Gallery, Armitage Bridge, on Saturday and Sunday at 3.00pm.
