Deafness + Music

DEAFNESS + MUSIC from Red Lab Films on Vimeo.

A compelling short video. shot and edited by Travis Howe of Red Lab Films featuring Myles de Bastion, the founder of CymaSpace and Audiolux Devices.

Myles is a musician who also happens to be Deaf. His search for ways to bridge his passion for music with his Deaf identity led him to develop technology that enables sound to be experienced as light and vibration.
He is now using this technology to show how performing arts can be made more inclusive and engaging for the Deaf & Hard-of-Hearing.
