Listening with my father

This project is a meditation on navigating my father’s rapid loss of hearing and collaborating together as a improviser and composer and listeners. My father has worked with heavy machinery most his life, loves music, and loves to listen to and to tell stories. Navigating hearing loss informs our work together and new ways of listening/composing. This new work is a meditation on the visual as sound and ways to listen through hearing loss. These new visual and sonic scores emerge from working with new ways to communicate through sound via listening with my father.
