Bespoke Music-Narration for Health & Wellness
Bespoke Music and Narration is the outcome of translational practice-based research co-created by composer-researcher, Dr Valerie Ross and cardiothoracic surgeon, Dr Abid Amir. The prolonged COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated health concerns among a wide spectrum of affected communities necessitating innovative ways to improve physical and mental wellbeing.
