MEDICAL HUMANITIES CREATIVE JOURNAL

Reflections and creations surrounding healthcare, the arts and humanities

About The Journal

This journal is a documentation of my creative journey during my year of studying Medical Humanities. It is about widening my perspectives and broadening my horizons, which I believe the medical humanities serves to do very well. This journal tells a significant amount about who I am as a person. It has given me the freedom to express my thoughts, as well as the time to invest in being creative. My main creative passion lies in music, with numerous audio recordings of my compositions and performances interspersed throughout this blog. The journal has also given me the opportunity to step outside my comfort zone and to explore my creativity in novel ways, including poetry, creative writing and art.

The journal has 4 overall sections:

1) Medical Humanities - a new beginning

2) Poetry

3) Perceptions - what do people think?

4) Music

I hope you enjoy reading and listening!

MY STORY

I am a Medical Student at the University of Manchester. I am currently taking a year out after my fourth year of Medicine to study a masters degree in Medical Humanities.

I wanted the final piece to be unlike the others, but with a laid-back finish. In order to do this I used new instruments that I have not experimented with before and left the piece without a sense of rhythm or beat, giving it an air of freedom.

July 10, 2018

I wanted to create a piece with the harp as the main instrument. The harp is associated with calm, beautiful and peaceful scenes, which reflects the atmosphere I was aiming to foster.

July 5, 2018

A reflective multi-piano piece.

July 1, 2018

This is the second solo piano piece written for the album.

June 30, 2018

This is the longest piece of music in the project, at 10 and a half minutes.

June 20, 2018

This was the first solo piano piece: a style and instrument I am familiar and confident in composing with, as I have been doing for 10 years.

June 15, 2018

This is the first piece of music with one instrument as a focus: the piano.

June 10, 2018

This was the first piece of ambient music I wrote independently. I used the tips and techniques taught by Gary to trial this composition style.
