Sounding Board
Back in 1993, Sounding Board ran a Music in Prisons feature examining two contrasting approaches in this growing area of activity for community musicians. Ian Tait describes his work as a regular sessional worker at HMP Frankland, and Katie Teale looks at lessons learned during Glyndebourne Touring Opera projects.

Originally published in Sounding Board Winter 1990-91

In this double-page interview, Search & Reflect author John Stevens discusses creative freedom, improvisation and the nature of community music.

"To me community music really happens when somebody feels that they have got the energy, inspiration and skill to go and help people to create music for themselves in a free way. And whatever it turns out to be, that is the identity of that group. It doesn't have to have anything to do with what we see as being officially music. There's all this potential for new music that none of us has heard, because it's too wide for us to conceive of how it could be. That's where I see some of the aid to what needs to be a re-balance in society."
