We’re so pleased to share with you the Soundscape that was created as part of our 25th Birthday celebrations. It has taken 12 months to record, edit and produce and throughout the process the team of Us in a Bus Practitioners kept focused on one guiding principle – that it must be true to the individuals involved and their vocalizations must remain as they intended them, without any manipulation. The result is an incredible collage of their voices and sounds that holds the individuals at its centre, following their emotional context at all times to create a sense of unity and continuity.
Rich Myles who worked on the project said “the nature of their conditions means that many of the people we support find communication to be a huge challenge. Yet, with great tenacity, each of them still asserts their personality through their own range of vocalisations and sounds. We wanted to create a unique and liberating celebration of their spirit. By recording their diverse forms of self-expression and uniting them in a piece of music this will be their ‘chorus’.”
