Hack Sounds – Music Senses Callout

Hack Sounds is bringing to you a new creative residency lab set to give musicians and other artists an opportunity to take music beyond sound and into other sensory realms.

Music Senses is a paid residency for 10 participants that seeks to connect music artists who are d/Deaf, hard of hearing (HoH) and hearing so they can collaborate, experiment and create music in new ways.

The collaborations will:

  • Explore and develop music and sound making processes and technologies
  • Develop a better understanding of how artists right across the hearing spectrum can collaborate creatively together
  • Better understand how d/Deaf and HoH communities can experience, create and participate in music.

Residency participants will explore interactive and complimentary artforms including music, lighting and projection, as well as electronic music, multisensory devices, wearables, vibration devices, triggers, and other technologies.

The lab will take place over two weeks during July 2021 at venues in Redfern and Western Sydney. Participants will be paid award rates for creative development activity. AUSLAN and captioning support will be provided.

Music Senses is a program of the Hack Sounds initiative developed in partnership between Accessible Arts and 107 Projects and supported by Create NSW.
