Abstract:

This article presents a personal reflection on the use of electronic music as a vehicle for community music in a disability setting. In order to do this, I draw on my experiences as the founder, facilitator, producer, tutor, sound artist and musician of TraLaLa Blip. I established the group in 2008, after having worked with people with disabilities for over fifteen years. From a health worker/music practitioner’s perspective, I describe some of the experiences and understandings I have developed working with this group, with the hope that these insights might be useful to others working with differently abled young people and electronic music in community music settings.
