    SIMM-podcast #11

    SIMM-podcast #11

    This 11th SIMM-podcast episode is presenting the French social music programme DEMOS, an initiative launched by the Philharmonie de Paris in 2010. We hear Lukas Pairon interview co-founder and director Gilles Delebarre (03:11->18:38) as well as research coordinator Indiana Wollman (18:40->31:06).

    The Philharmonie de Paris and its social music programme DEMOS will be hosting the 6th international SIMM-posium on 2nd and 3rd November 2021.  The programme of this year’s SIMM-posium will soon be published on the websites of SIMM, the Philharmonie de Paris and our partner the Fondation Royaumont.

    DEMOS is in its 11th year. It offers young children instruments and music lessons for free. Launched by the Philharmonie de Paris in 2010, DEMOS has spread all over France and French territories, now involving more than 6000 kids. More and more fine musicians are interested to involve themselves in educational and social work. Also at the Philharmonie de Paris. At first the aim of DEMOS was to make classical music accessible to children who would not otherwise have come in touch with it. DEMOS is aimed at children from 8 to 12 years old. They get about 4 hours music training a week. During their 3 years of training, the kids are always experiencing music in group situations. These music programmes are proposed to kids who live in lower income neighbourhoods. But these neighbourhoods are socially mixed. For DEMOS the composition of the groups is of great importance: they make sure the groups are socially mixed. Some kids may have social and financial challenges, while others have fewer difficulties. The aim is to enhance the ability to look at others positively. 

    The short music extracts you will hear during this episode were recorded of different DEMOS-orchestras during their end of season concerts last month at the Philharmonie de Paris.

    SIMM-podcast #10

    SIMM-podcast #10

    In this 10th SIMM-podcast episode Lukas Pairon interviews Inês Lamela (01:54->13:33) and Graça Mota (13:35->28:29) from Portugal, Aine Mangaoang (28:31->43:09) from Ireland who is now living and working in Norway, and Ailbhe Kenny (43:11->54:23) from Ireland. We discuss with them about research on music programmes in detention.
    One previous episode of the SIMM-podcast already treated these topics: In the 3rd episode we interviewed John Speyer, Mary Cohen and André de Quadros. 
    This subject was also discussed during two sessions at the 5th SIMM-posium with the Brussels-based Bozar (on 26th January and on 2nd February 2021) of which recordings can be found on the website of SIMM.  
    The reason why we propose another podcast-episode on this topic is this: During this year’s 4th SIMM-seminar from 6 to 9th December at the Porto University College CIPEM, we will during 4 days bring together a small group of up to 20 scholars doing research on music programmes in detention. Experienced facilitators will allow the participants to share their research experiences, ideas and methodologies. 3 of those facilitators are being interviewed during this podcast episode: Graça Mota, Ines Lamela and Ailbhe Kenny.

    SIMM-podcast #9

    In this 9th SIMM-podcast episode we hear Lukas Pairon interview musicians Inês Lamela (01:05-30:23), Dirk Proost (30:25-38:24), Filip Verneert (38:25-48:27) and Sarah Thery (48:30-74:58) about what motivates them to want to engage themselves in social and community music projects, and also about how they prepare themselves for this type of work. 
    These musicians are 4 very different personalities, from different countries and musical worlds. But listening to them during this somewhat longer episode of the SIMM-podcast, you will find that they are not that different in terms of what concerns them most. 

    -----

    Two previous episodes of the SIMM-podcast already treated questions in relation to this topic: In the 2nd and 5th episode we interviewed An De Bisschop (scholar, University College Ghent), Mattias Laga (musician, De Ledebirds, Ghent) and André de Quadros (musician, USA), and in the 5th episode we interviewed Graça Mota (scholar, CIPEM, Porto), Khamis Abu Shaaban (musician, Edward Said Music Conservatory, Gaza), Cathy Milliken (composer, Australia) and Bart Maris (musician, Ghent).

    The subject was also discussed during two sessions of the 5th SIMM-posium we organised with the Brussels-based Bozar (sessions of 19.01.21 and  23.02.21 - recordings can be found here).  And this year’s 3rd SIMM-seminar at the Royaumont Foundation (30.10-01.11.21) as well as the 6th SIMM-posium at the Philharmonie de Paris (3-4.11.21) will also very much focus on this topic.
