Composer and musician George Higgs, with the support of Helium Arts and the Waterford Healing Arts Trust, brought Music for Small Ears to babies and their families in public health clinics in Waterford in 2016. The project promoted the principles of positive infant mental health to families with George behaving as a quasi-participant in the waiting areas during BCG and Developmental Clinics.
Over a number of sessions, George designed a performance apparatus and composed an interactive musical performance. This short film follows George on his final performance in June 2016.
Music for Small Ears was funded by an Arts Council Project Award.
