connection through music
Time & Location
About the Event
We want to let you know about an opportunity to experience and engage in a music session designed to promote a feeling of wellbeing and connectedness with others. We hope you can join us for a 40 minute session where you will listen to music created by the artists and together we will share any memories or experiences this music evokes.
Angela Kennedy and Paras Patel, Trauma Informed consultants, have worked with Prof. Nigel Osborne and his team at X-systems (software that predicts our responses to music) to collaborate with musicians to bring you to carefully formulated playlist to help promote your wellbeing and our connectedness with others. We will be launching our two new playlists and a live performance from Alistair Sutherland:
“Dealing with pain and trauma” list
“Dealing with sadness and depression” list
Live: Alistair Sutherland
This free online music event is focused around connecting with our humanity and uses a musical playlist devised by artificial intelligence to make you feel good and uses songs created by our artists. The chat will be facilitated by Mental health consultants. This event is open to all but particularly welcome NHS staff and other key workers and people with lived experience of illness or adversity. The musicians will play their compositions live and participants will listen together and join in an online chat if they wish around the things that the music evokes for them. Please keep comments respectful and only say things you are happy to be in the public domain and we are video recording the session. Your consent will be assumed by you joining via the link below. We will try to collate themes from the stories at a later date.
Starting at 19:00 on Thursday 28th May, the event will last about 40 minutes at the most so you have time to clap for keyworkers at 8pm. Please try to stay until the end. We would appreciate if you can log in the survey below and share a little about your current state and mood. This same survey will be repeated at the end and help us understand the impact of the session. Please use the same word or phrase in question 1 so we are able to match your pre and post data for our evaluation
We want to thank Prof. Nigel Osborne and his x-system team and all the musicians. You can find more playlists devised to support us during times of adversity by changing our emotional states on this link.
