INTERIOR DESIGN: Music for the Bionic Ear


Study for the Bionic Ear #1
Percussion duo and spatialised tape
2011

One of six new works commissioned by the Bionic Ear Institute specifically for reception through the cochlear implant.

Presented in association with the Arts Centre Melbourne, the brief was to research and test new sounds and musical forms both in the lab and with cochlear implant users themselves. The concert, spatialised through a 22 speaker array, was intended to be enjoyed by both cochlear implant users and audiences with normal hearing, thus allowing implant users to converse with friends and family as to their respective experiences.
