Origins of Story-to-Song

Story-to-Song (STS) is the culmination of research conducted by Marieke Slovin Lewis and Malcolm Brooks, who worked together closely for several years, studying and exploring the connections between songwriting and sustainability during their time as doctoral students in the Sustainability Education PhD program at Prescott College.

It was through this dynamic, collaborative, iterative research that Marieke and Malcolm transformed an initial idea for composing music from a story into a fully formed method. This research became the basis for each of their individual dissertations.

Since graduating from the program, Marieke and Malcolm have moved on to follow their own individual, musical paths.
