Find out more about Emma Welton:
I studied music at Manchester and York Universities. I perform on violin, viola or double bass with Lavolta ensemble, Exeter Contemporary Sounds, Icebreaker and in other groups and on all sorts of platforms. I am co-curator with Tony Whitehead of A Quiet Night In, creating performances of quiet contemporary music otherwise neither performed nor widely-known in Devon and providing a context for the exploration of the creative possibilities in quiet/silence. I am a Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra musician, touring the south west with BSO chamber groups, and co-leading with Hugh Nankivell BSO’s Exeter Family Orchestra.

Minute of Listening In a world which is becoming increasingly visually loud, Minute of Listening helps pupils develop their creative listening skills. This carefully curated collection of 60-second recordings introduces children to a range of music and sounds from Björk to Beethoven, folk music to field recordings. Accompanying resources help enrich all curriculum areas, and follow-up questions encourage children to discuss what they heard, thought and felt. https://www.minuteoflistening.org
Homing Inside Out, a listening guide for home quarantine is the result of an artistic adventure under unusual circumstances. During the first weeks of the corona lockdown Guy, Michiel, Renate and Vivian were video conferencing about possible collaborations, the idea came up to provide a listening guide for people confined to their home. This guide provides a collection of scores for a do-it-yourself home expedition filled with listening exercises, https://soundtrackcity.net/product/homing-inside-out/
