WORKSHOP: MUSIC AT HOSPITAL BEDSIDES

September 9 → 2:00 pm3:00 pm

King Street Halls, Kirkwall

Sue Carney looks at the therapeutic use of music from two perspectives – as a lifelong musician, and now in the study of sound, music and cognition at the University of Oregon. As a musician, she plays instruments from krummhorn and tabor to clarinet and alto sax, and she is the co-founder of the Terra Nova Consort which plays ethnic music of the renaissance. As a therapist, she has explored the potential of music in a variety of health situations. In this workshop, she describes some of the ways in which music can make a difference, with live demonstrations inviting you to imagine yourself in the position of a patient. There are opportunities for questions and discussion, and a break for tea/coffee and Orkney biscuits.

Numbers limited to 20: booking essential.

Sue Carney has produced music for the Oregon Shakespeare Festival for many years, and performs in musical styles from early European music and settings from Shakespearean lyrics to Flamenco, 40s swing and traditional Irish music. She is currently engaged in the project ‘Three Sleeps’, in which she converts biological data into sound to portray and contrast the hidden inner worlds of three sleepers over the course of a night’s sleep.

Numbers limited to 20: booking essential.
