Music & Mind: Harnessing the Arts for Health and Wellness (2024)

I’m so very excited to announce that esperanza spalding and I have contributed to a grounding new anthology about the powerful impacts of music and arts on health and the human experience!

Our new chapter "…& the Field: Re-membering the Hinterlands in Music & Health" is featured in Music and Mind: Harnessing the Arts for Health and Wellness, a collection of essays from leading scientists, artists, creative arts therapists, educators, and physicians, edited by 2023 Kennedy Center Honoree and Arts/Health advocate, soprano Renée Fleming. It’s a comprehensive overview of the astonishing advances at the intersection of arts, health, and neuroscience.

"To be rooted, for us, renders solitary beings, often forebode by ancestral knowledge, as an unfathomable existence. Our rootedness extends us beyond our own personhood to recognize our connectedness as part of a reciprocal whole."
~ Dr. Marisol Norris + esperanza spalding

I especially hope you’ll read my and esperanza spalding's chapter, where we discuss our work in musical placemaking and the many chapters by fascinating people from almost every discipline in this expanding field.
