On 11th August 2020 we performed Songs Found Between Sky and Ground to over 100 audience members from all over the world. Over 9 weeks we co-composed an original song with Verity Standen and presented this to a live audience over Zoom.
We’ve all been separated by lockdown, but there was a storm happening.
We have been going through the same storm.
Aided by the composter and vocal enchanter Verity Standen many minds members have been finding songs. In puddles and sparkling rivers, oak tree canopies and bluebell carpets. Inspired by snuffling badgers, pretty little birdies and a big fat cat.
We’ve found songs in our breath, the ropevines that have caught us and the heat on
our sun-kissed skin. We’ve found songs in our memories of sand-tickled toes and festivals glittering.
We are Many Minds, a mental health and performance charity made up of people who identify with experiences of mental ill-health.
I often find my mood and the weather are sometimes so connected it’s hard to tell which started where….
Nature is heaven. I am free like a bird. I am alive, I am at one with creation.
