Music Workshops 2011

A unique programme of music workshops for adult CI users

We ran a series of innovative music workshops in conjunction with SoCo Music Project between February and June 2011. The workshops took place in SoCo's Creative Hub, which is located in the Bargate Centre in Southampton.

The three workshops explored aspects of music that can be accessed and appreciated through a cochlear implant through a variety of listening, computer-based and practical activities.

Workshop A: Strategies for Listening to Music

Using listening exercises created for cochlear implant users, this first set of workshops were designed to help attendees develop their own techniques for listening to recorded music. You can read a review of the workshops in our news section.

You can also download the information sheets given out at the end of Workshops A as a PDF document. Feedback on the suggested listening (e-mail Ben Oliver: B.Oliver@soton.ac.uk) is always most welcome!

Workshop B: Musical Building Blocks

Held in May 2011 the second set of workshops enabled attendees to rearrange familiar songs using bespoke software, so that individual instruments can be heard more clearly. You can read a review of the workshops in our news section.

You can download the information sheets given out at the end of Workshop B as a PDF document. Feedback on the suggested listening (e-mail Ben Oliver: B.Oliver@soton.ac.uk) is most welcome!

Workshop C: Listening to Live Music

Through performances from a group of student and staff musicians from the University of Southampton music department, these final two workshops enabled attendees to explore strategies for getting the most out of live music. The first workshop was filmed by Roger Finn for BBC South Today. You can read a review of these final workshops in our news section.
