Gilbertson, S., & Hebert, D. (2021). Music in a Concussive Monologue. Voices: A World Forum for Music Therapy, 21(3).


The co-authors, a music therapist and a musicologist who suffered a concussion, collaboratively develop an autoethnography detailing the phenomenological experience of concussion and the gradually increasing role of music throughout the recovery process. Along the way, they discover new things about music, the mind, scholarship, and themselves.
