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.  This site was created to share research output and resources from the Bespoke Music-Narration Soundbank Collection which comprises a collation of original music, narration, multi-language scripts, poetry and photography crafted to complement established therapeutic techniques and practices aimed at supporting a return to health and wellness in clinical and home-based settings.
