Hannah Gibbs

Hannah Gibbs is a Music Psychology PhD candidate at the University of York and is funded through the AHRC White Rose College of Arts and Humanities. Her studies began at Cardiff University as a classical pianist and double bassist with a love for Russian music. Here, she first discovered Gamelan, while simultaneously developing her interests in the benefits of music for mental health. Her research is focused on providing empirical evidence to support the short and long-term wellbeing benefits of participating in Gamelan music-making. She is particularly interested in the effects of synchronicity between members of the ensemble, and the experience of collective flow state, contributing to social¬†cohesion and positive emotions. She will be collaborating part of her research with the nationwide organisation Good Vibrations’ Resonate Project in Glasgow and Nottingham.
