Sound artist Rebecca Bracewell has been exploring her hearing aids creatively through her project Instruments that Listen, as a Little Operations project with Chamber Made, in partnership with the Australian Art Orchestra (AAO).
Arising from her experience with hearing loss, Instruments that Listen examines what it means to listen imperfectly and with a reliance on hearing technology.
Rebecca has been investigating the specific sound world of each hearing aid, with the aim of creating ways of sharing these sound worlds with others in live performance settings.
Whilst developing this unique work in Chamber Made’s Little Operations program, Rebecca has come into creative dialogue with Jem Savage, Peter Knight, Madeleine Flynn, Aviva Endean, Sia Ahmad and Tamara Saulwick.
Little Operations is an eighteen month program which supports emerging artists to develop their artistic ideas while providing professional development support and mentorship around the many other associated skills required to sustain a long-term career in the arts.
Instruments that Listen is in partnership with the Australian Art Orchestra and supported by City of Melbourne, Playking Foundation, and the Australia Council for the Arts. Thank you also to One Step at a Time Like This for generously lending us the headphones.
