Close Encounters

On the 1st of  October a meeting was convened at the Bionic ear Institute in Melbourne between four CI (cochlear implant) recipients, four composers involved in the Interior Design project and 2 scientists. The meeting was semi-formal and served to facilitate communication between implant recipients and composers as well as the filming for a slot […]

Work continues…..

I have been spending some valuable time with the electrodometer over the last couple of weeks, testing the reaction of the implant with various sonic inputs. Some preliminary tests have shown that the purity of the sine tone provides clearest and most easily controlled stimulus to the individual electrodes. Below are two electrodometer visualisations.

Interior Design: Music for the bionic ear.

Introduction to the project: The residency comprises three months of research and development around the idea of composing music for cochlear implant wearers. The artist (Robin Fox…that’s me) is working closely in collaboration with Bionic Ear Institute research scientists Hamish Innes-Brown and Jeremy Marozeau to tailor music or more broadly ‘organize sound’ designed for reception […]
