Music & Movement
Tell us about the importance of music and movement in child development; tell us what sort of music you like to move to; throw some moves for us; make some music or do a bit of both.
Our "Lost in Music" theme in 2016 was such a popular one, we wanted to explore music again so - whatever you can tell us about music and/or movement in 20 slides x 20 seconds - we want to hear from you!
[Like all our themes, this is intended as a prompt, inspiration or jumping off point - whatever the theme inspires for you, we want to hear about it! To sign up to speak, please get in touch via the 'Want to present?' link.]
Spencer Graham - In Three Movements Spencer Graham discusses how he has used a track, an album and a festival, all titled Movement, as initial sources to develop new approaches to listening and presentation building. Echoing the movement of a turntable and tape deck, he talks in circles whilst describing the very process of putting together Three Movements. He has purposefully used the word ‘movement’ three times in this blurb to highlight the presentation’s title, Three Movements, and reflect the circular notion of the talk itself.
With The Hurdy Gurdy History Man, Paul Curtis AKA The Deep FACT Friar hasn't always been seen wondering around Coventry's Medieval City Wall as a tour guide whilst dressed as a monk. After retiring from the railway industry and discovering a section of medieval city wall, The Friar can be seen moving large group of tourists, Coventrians, students and school children around his home at the Coventry Priory Visitors Centre where he's available for baptisms and hearing confessions.
Keith Gabriel brings us I Bet You Look Desperately Uncoordinated On The Dancefloor: an accidental journey into rock stardom. By day, Keith Gabriel works inefficiently at the University of Warwick. By night, he generally does as little as he can, aside from bemoaning the domestic mundanities of parenthood. So how did this increasingly corpulent man, who’d previously never sang before a live audience, end up as the lead singer of an indie-rock band? And did he wiggle like a Jarvis, pogo like a Damon or just kinda stand there like a Liam?
