What happens when the soundtrack to your life starts to change?
Platform 4’s acclaimed and unforgettable live event, Invisible Music, has been transformed into a new and exciting digital piece of work, available to stream online for free. Blending film and soundscape to create an immersive and intimate meditation on hearing loss, the piece aims to raise awareness for the 12 million individuals in the UK with hearing difficulties. Invisible Music is a thought provoking and experimental feature, exploring the sensation of having the frequency of your life altered.
Revitalising their gig-theatre roots in an all-encompassing aural headphone experience, this experimental new musical journey from Pete Flood (Bellowhead’s arranger and composer) with striking projections by digital artist Barret Hodgson (Fatboy Slim; Motionhouse), is a captivating showcase drawn from personal experiences.
With a routine trip to Sainsbury’s becoming an exercise in the surreal, and everyday experiences proving abnormal and out of your control, participants can journey across the mesmerising soundscape and experience life behind the impairment.
Keeping accessibility at the forefront, this digital experience will be captioned, enabling the message at the heart of the piece to be shared by a broader audience. The project has been supported by emergency funding from Arts Council England.
Tune in for this unforgettable journey. Plug in, zone out, and enjoy.
