The Churning Belly

The Churning Belly is a prototype musical sculpture designed as part of a sensory playground for children, in collaboration with an EYFS teachers and their classes. The scheme followed the EYFS and KS1 curriculum in it's conception, describing different functions of the human body through sounds, with each musical model (for which Churning Belly is 1 of 4) correlating musically to the next.  The aim was to pose questions around what role music can play in a child's development, if embodied (physically and acoustically) interactions were entangled with collective and collaborative musicing efforts, as a byproduct of their current curriculum.   (2016)
