Pre- & Perinatal Community Music
Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Mastnak, Hochschule für Musik und Theater München
At around 24 weeks, the foetus has developed a viable neural auditory equipment. The child gets acoustically involved in social processes; auditory and musical acculturation begins.

Due to the foetus’ cortical maturation, auditory memory and processing allow learning effects and enhance the development of the auditory cognition. The in utero environment causes sound pressure attenuation and sound transmission is modulated by the abdominal maternal wall. Mixed with noise from the mother’s digestive and cardiovascular organs, the foetus hears the mother’s voice and receives external auditory cues such as the father’s voice, music and traffic noise.

These conditions allow us to speak of informal perinatal music education and of vocal bonding. The social communication modes, however, are extremely asymmetric.

Depending on the quality of auditory stimulation, the last trimester of pregnancy may be advantageous for the foetal cortical development and enhance neuroplasticity. At the same time the foetus is susceptible to harmful auditory constellations which way trigger unfavourable conditioned neuro-cognitive circuitries and in interfere with the personal growth in a negative way. Pregnancy and particularly the mother’s awareness of how music would influence the baby’s cognitive development and neural maturation is likely to entail community music activities. Music ‘self help groups’ aim also at self-care, maintenance of social inclusion and prevention of depression and anxieties.

Ante- and perinatal music practices give rise to various ethical issues: musical sedatives, music as intelligence booster, acoustic overload though pregnancy music belts etc. have to be seriously discussed.
