Abstract

This article reports on the ongoing project development and research study called “A New Sound and Music Milieu at Aalborg University Hospital”. Based on a number of pilot studies in AUH Psychiatry, investigating how special playlists and sound equipment (“sound pillows” and portable players) can be used by hospital patients and administered by hospital staff supervised by music therapists, the new project aims to prepare the ground for a systematic application of sound and music in the hospital environment. A number of playlists have been developed, based on theoretical and empirical research in music medicine and music therapy. A special design of software and hardware - ”The Music Star” and directional line array speakers for the patient room – has been developed and recently implemented on two wards at AUH Psychiatry. The aim of the project is to empower patients to choose music suited to their needs here-and-now. In the study, we focus on how self-selected music may lead to decrease of anxiety and pain or improved relaxation/sleep. The article describes and discusses the theory-driven development of the sound/music milieu, relevant empirical studies, the novel method of data collection, preliminary results of the project and implications for the future implementation of the model.
