Special Educational Needs

Colourscape has a strong attraction for those with disability and special educational needs. The intense colour and light has a powerful impact on those with sensory deprivation and learning disabilities. Those with ASD have a particular benefit from the calming colour and space inside Colourscape. Typical workshops are about one hour in duration and cover colour, light and music. Our Colourscape music workshop leaders use percussion, voice and Tibetan Singing Bowls to link vibration and natural human music-making to bring out the young people’s musical awareness.

Our latest Colourscape structure, Moonorooni, was created with funding from City Bridge Trust and Arts Council of England specifically for those with disability. With greater wheelchair access and the ability to fit on school sites we can often present workshops to every child in a school in one day of Colourscape showing.

Our computer music workshops (external link) have been developed through our own funding and research with composer David Stevens. A unique range of special sensors has been refined and developed so that children can create and perform their own music whatever their limitations of movement. Movement, pressure and distance sensors link to specially-created software so that children with special educational needs can sample their own sounds and create their own music.

Our new mobile sensory space takes the computer-music system to new realms, linking the sensors to strong computer-controlled lights projecting all the colours of the rainbow on to fabric “sails” stretched into a soft environment installed in any school hall or educational room.

AASUPPORTERRGBEye Music Trust supports the work of schools and organisations in providing for Arts Awards. Our workshops are particularly suitable for those working towards the “Explore” level.
