Sensing Sound: Ali Donaldson & Chris Cutler in Conversation

17 March 2022
5:00 pm
7:00 pm

Two strangers exchange experiences of listening and hearing loss.

Two professionals from different fields exchange experiences of listening and hearing loss. How do they hear – and sometimes mis-hear – sounds, music, noise, nature and speech? What have they learned about sound and living with disability? What difference do the latest technologies make? And how can others include them in social exchanges?

Ali Donaldson is a specialist in writing and communications, having worked as a policy researcher, archaeological digger, magazine writer, editor and writing coach.

Chris Cutler is a musician and composer who was in Pere Ubu, worked with The Residents, wrote for orchestras, made radio art pieces and ran a year-long soundscape programme for Resonance FM.

This is a hybrid event that will be livestreamed by Sound Art Brighton.

Refreshments will be available to those attending the venue. Read the accessibility information for the ONCA Barge here.
