The purpose of the campaign is to raise funds for the purchase of musical instruments and new technologies applied to the development of the cognitive system of people with disabilities.
This gift is in honour to BTS Yoongi
Human beings are by nature musical creatures. Along with touch, the ear is the first sensory system to develop within the maternal womb, only at 16 weeks after conception.
Researchers from McGill University, in Montreal, Canada, carried out an unprecedented study where they gathered the strongest evidence about the therapeutic potential of music and music therapy. A set of 400 scientific articles that were published in recent years was compiled from accredited testimonies and was published in the magazine "Trends in Cognitive Science". But even more important, the Canadian researchers managed to document the neurochemical mechanisms from which music develops a positive effect in four areas: the management of the state of mind, stress, immunity and as an aid for social bonding.
In the Playing For Change Patagonia school, working in a multidisciplinary team we experience that music, contact with nature and technology generate powerful changes in people with disabilities and we use these tools to generate conditions that allow a better social and labor inclusion .
Our school is located in a Natural Protected Area called Paso Cordova, millenary land where large herds of dinosaurs lived.
In this space we have built a music therapy and soundhealing room in a circular way with natural materials (mud, stone and wood) that favors the internal and external work we do with the students.
The money raised will be used to equip this system with surround sound systems (3D and 360 °) lighting systems for chromotherapy, vaporization systems for aromatherapy and digital and analogue musical instruments, feasible to interact with each other and also through sensors with plants and the surrounding natural environment.
Equipment needs. Surround sound equipment U $ S 1.000 Raspberry plates, sensors, led lights and robotic accessories U $ S 3.000 Quartz / gong bowls U $ S 3.000 Tibetan bowls $ U $ S1,000 HandPan U $ S 3.000
The campaign will finish by the end of March
