Nature Music

Music is at the centre of what it means to be human – it is the sounds of human bodies and minds moving in creative, story-making ways. Following a survey of the history of discoveries of infant abilities, we propose that the gestural narrative structures of voice and body seen as infants communicate with loving caregivers are the building blocks of what become particular cultural instances of the art of music, and of dance, theatre and other temporal arts. Children enter into a musical culture where their innate communicative musicality can be encouraged and strengthened through sensitive, respectful, playful, culturally informed teaching in companionship. The central importance of our abilities for music as part of what sustains our well-being is supported by evidence that communicative musicality strengthens emotions of social resilience to aid recovery from mental stress and illness.

The Railway Land Wildlife Trust presents ‘Songs of Nature,’ a concert featuring artists from diverse musical backgrounds performing music inspired by nature. I started performing again recently and it truly is beautiful to feel the audience and to establish this moment of timelessness, almost, within people. Music gives time a different perspective, and when everyone is experiencing that together, it is incredibly beautiful. I especially enjoyed it during lockdown as I had a lot more time to really dive in and explore and experience nature completely.

It will be hard to adjust myself because, as I said, it’s music that was created without any desire to prove something, or to show something. I think that this is probably the reason why many artists have been connecting with nature and have immersed themselves in it. They were just happy, and their heart was full of knowledge and awareness of the sun, the clouds… My phone was not constantly ringing and I felt that the world was very calm and beautiful.
