The Music and Memory Project
At the beginning of 2019 i began to think about the relationship between music and the things we forget and the things we remember. The exploration started with an interest in how quickly events were unfolding in national life and how quickly we seem to forget how things happen and how they are related.
Popular music wasn't helping us to remember it was helping us to forget.
I started the music and memory project with the following questions;
- With so much happening around us can we use music to help us process them? How do we remember important events?
- How is music connected to our memories?
- How is popular music shaping our memories?
- How far can we remember?
- Why is remembering important?
