Psychosocial Sonic Mapping: Breaking the Cycles of Injustice in Music Education
17 June 2021
Sound Connections host this pilot event that introduces a deeply reflexive approach to interrogating our musical influences, values and beliefs, exploring how these inform our work with children and young people in 21st century Britain

How do the ‘inner’ constellations of our sound and musical memories, listening habits and aural experiences resonate with the ‘outer’ soundscape of a world in crisis?

This event will be based upon the idea of psychosocial sonic mapping, which involves assembling fragments of the music, sounds and silences that have surrounded and shaped us from birth. Sonic mapping also considers our intimate relationships to sound objects and technologies (e.g. the voice, instruments, the body, radio), tracking and tracing the construction of our musical worlds through our homes, families and community spaces.

It will involve critical reflection processes and prompts to examine our musical inheritances and sonic present, identifying and charting the relations of power, how it is reproduced in society and possible points of disruption to patterns of inequity.

Who is this event for?

Anyone working with young people through music whatever your role is; from teacher, practitioner, facilitator or youth worker to coordinator, producer, manager or director.

The session runs from 10am - 1pm.
