One has to go to a concert, or a church or a musical festival, to recapture the collective excitement and bonding of music.

Key components of the Emotional Motor System are in place when the neocortex is unformed.” (Trevarthen, 2001, p. 26). Narratives of individual experience and of companionship, built from sequences of co-created gestures which have particular attributes of pulse and quality that bring aesthetic pleasure (Malloch and Trevarthen, 2009b; Trevarthen and Malloch, 2017b).

The Group has found that the connection between young people and nature dips during teenage years and takes more than a decade to recover. The Nature Connectedness Group at the University of Derby has found that the connection between young people and nature dips during teenage years and takes more than a decade to recover. The importance of rhythm and the graceful narratives of movement displayed by infants as they communicate purposes and feelings was revealed sixty years ago by a psychobiological approach using photography and movie film, then video. Discoveries were made that challenged the theory that infants had no minds, no sense of self, and therefore no sense of others (Zeedyk, 2006; Reddy, 2008).

Especially in the last line, well controlled musical tricks varying the beat are used to mark a climax and resolution.” (Trevarthen, 1989, p. 96). The mother sings with a clear melodic tone varying her pitch in a treble range and making rises and falls to make a simple development of the ‘emotional narrative’. “There are certain aspects of the so-called ‘inner life’—physical or mental —which have formal properties similar to those of music—patterns of motion and rest, of tension and release, of agreement and disagreement, preparation, fulfilment, excitation, sudden change, etc. The editor and reviewers’ affiliations are the latest provided on their Loop research profiles and may not reflect their situation at the time of review.

The change of the leaves and that moment where all the leaves become red and yellow, and then fall down… I feel that nature is a great and complex world – a complex world that humans could not create. We strive, and we try, but we will never arrive at that same greatness.

Figure 5B shows a four-second section of a pitch plot of ‘old me’ voice. First there is evidence from a recording made by Saskia van Rees in an intensive care unit in Amsterdam that rhythms corresponding to those of human locomotion are present in vocalizations of a premature infant which are precisely coordinated with simple vocal exchanges with a caring father . We summarize here key findings related to the growth of musical abilities from studies of infant individuals that we have reported previously. “… the mother and infant were collaborating in a pattern of more or less alternating, non-overlapping vocalization, the mother speaking brief sentences and the infant responding with coos and murmurs, together producing a brief joint performance similar to conversation, which I called ‘proto conversation’. The study of timing and sequencing showed that certainly the mother and probably the infant, in addition to conforming in general to a regular pattern, were acting to sustain it or to restore it when it faltered, waiting for the expected vocalization from the other and then after a pause resuming vocalization, as if to elicit a response that had not been forthcoming. These interactions were characterized by a sort of delighted, ritualized courtesy and more or less sustained attention and mutual gaze.

This matters as a close connection with nature helps both the wellbeing of people and our planet, as people who are tuned into nature are more likely to care for it. The Nature Connectedness Research Group at the University of Derby has found that the connection between young people and nature dips during teenage years and takes more than a decade to recover. The Prize began in 2020 and was developed and conceived by Miles Richardson, Professor of Human Factors and Nature Connectedness at the University of Derby.

“The function of music is to enhance in some way the quality of individual experience and human relationships; its structures are reflections of patterns of human relations, and the value of a piece of music as music is inseparable from its value as an expression of human experience” Blacking (1995, p.31). I’ve always believed that, in school, the first thing you should do with children is listen to a piece of music with them. Whether that be a song or a piece by Bach, I’m sure that by doing this, day after day, the child will benefit incredibly from it. To mark World Earth Day, Yorkshire Sculpture Park has teamed up with the Nature Connectedness Research Group at the University of Derby, musician Sam Lee, Selfridges, and Tileyard London to search for a piece of original music that tunes into nature – helping to highlight the need for a new relationship with nature and provide vital support for young creative practitioners.

In line with Goodrich’s “counter tradition,” their work anticipates the new understanding of the human BrainMind pioneered by Panksepp and Damasio, which gives primary importance to feelings of vitality in movement, and to emotions that express positive and negative affections in sympathetic communication. This is the science of communicative musicality which underpins the music we create and enjoy. As Daniel Stern has written , the human body has a rich range of gestural ‘forms of vitality’ – we move in musical ways. And within each actor there is both ‘self-sensing’ and ‘other-sensing’ of the degree of grace, or biological efficiency and hopefulness in the gestural narratives of our projects. These qualities of vitality, or well-being, transmitted to others, become the qualities of relationships and social activities – their moral values (Kirschner and Tomasello, 2010; Narvaez, 2014; Trainor and Cirelli, 2015). They convey relational feelings for the degree of consensuality or sharing of expression in moving.

For example, failure to gain a sympathetic appreciation of their musicality can cause an infant to express withdrawal and distress . Instead of joyful pride in sharing play they show sadness and shame . However, an infant’s communicative musicality can also be expressive of resilience and determination. These examples illustrate the narrative phases that infants respond to, which are found in infant directed speech or baby songs in different languages. The baby shares the development, climax and resolution of the narrative, with vocalizations close to middle C. A slow lullaby, of 26 s, has four-line stanzas, with rhyming vowels.
