Lost and Sound (with Q&A)



00.00, Tuesday 25 February 2014

41 Portland Place, The Academy of Medical Sciences

This event is free but must be booked in advance. Tickets available here.

1 in 7 of us will experience some kind of deafness in our lifetime. So what would happen to the music you love, if your hearing was lost?

Made by a partially deaf filmmaker after the future of her own hearing was called into doubt, Lost and Sound is a moving and fascinating documentary that follows music critic Nick Coleman, dancer Emily Thornton and pianist Holly Loach over 2 years, as they journey deep into sound and silence to re-discover music after deafness.

The evening will feature a screening of Lost and Sound, followed by a Q&A session with a member of the film production team and leading experts from the field of hearing research.

Joining us for a discussion after the film will be: 

Professor Brian Moore FRS FMedSci, Professor of Auditory Perception, University of Cambridge

Nick Coleman, music critic and star of Lost & Sound

Dr Geoff Watts FMedSci, science writer and medical journalist

+ special guests

Doors open from 7pm. The screening will begin at 7.30pm, and the Q&A should begin at around 8.45pm.
