Unite the Beat

 

About:

We use the medium of sound to facilitate play, promote mindfulness and stimulate community.  This involves encouraging innovation and curiosity as your forage for and create sounds. Whether you are an organisation looking for team building, or a group looking for a unique way to celebrate, we can create something to suit your needs.

Music, Nature and Play:

We all know that getting out into nature is good for you, indeed you will be overwhelmed by a wealth of scientific studies if you google it.  These range from bold assertions by The Nature Conservancy that ‘Human well-being depends on the benefits that nature provides for free, everyday and everywhere,’ to findings by environmental psychologist Judith Heerwagon that ‘Spending time in nature has been shown to lower stress levels’ (Huff post).  The same is true for engaging in the arts, with Musicians cited as having ‘Superior working memory compared to non-musicians’ (Berti, et al., 2006; Pallesen et al. cited by the NAMM foundation) and another range of papers discussing stress reduction among other benefits.  Then we come to play, where most understand the need for children to play, but what about adults?  At Unite the Beat we think it is possible and even important to combine these disciplines and to do so in a way that tackles discrimination, isolation and exclusion.  We fear that both children and adults are forgetting how to play, how to spend time in nature and losing interest in the benefits of the arts.  As Ralph Waldo Emersion stated ‘It is a happy talent to know how to play’ (Voice of Play) and we want to help remind people.
