Listening Through the Body
Borealis: Talk

Tarek Atoui (LB)

For Bergen Assembly 2016, Tarek Atoui is developing a project that aims to learn from the deaf to re-visit established and conventional ways of experiencing sound. The project will materialise in several forms, one of which is imagining and constructing musical instruments that address both deaf and hearing persons. In this talk Atoui will be presenting those musical instruments and in collaboration with students from the Nordahl Grieg High School and the Bergen Architecture School show how their work together has influenced and improved some of the instruments.

Presented by Borealis in collaboration with Bergen Assembly.
Supported by Fritt Ord.
