Global Music Visions C.I.C. updates February and March 2020

With Toucan Diversity Training Ltd we facilitated some Visual Impairment Awareness training sessions for the staff and volunteers at the Mary Rose Museum. We have also completed some lyric writing and song composition sessions with Losing My Sight UK. The two groups now have a demo track each, which they will use for rehearsing to before having them recorded. The GMV Music group is continuing to work on their projects.

The GMV Music group of 4 is standing on the grass facing away from the camera. In front of them are green bushes. The group is recording ambient sounds. One person is standing holding a microphone out in front of them as another person to their right is holding the mic leads. Another member is standing behind them wearing headphones and listening to the sounds being recorded, watched by another person. David is standing in the middle of the group supporting with the recording. Sunlight is shining over the tops of houses in the background.

Global Music Visions C.I.C. Updates December 2019

It has been another busy month. We completed the backing track for Rachel Goodall and her performance of her original show “The Shoes That Were Danced Through”. We are continuing to deliver group music workshops with the GMV Music Group, and we have also facilitated a taster session at Craneswater Junior School, which will hopefully lead to new opportunities, in the future. We are still working on our first audio book trial, alongside supporting two groups of adults to create original songs for an upcoming project, which you will hear more about soon.

Included is a photo of the group of five pupils. The laptop is open on the table in front of two of the pupils, and the MIDI keyboard is on the table in front of the other three pupils. David is crouching between the two groups of pupils.
