Interior design: Music for the bionic ear

Music written by various composers, curated by Hamish Innes-Brown This is a concert for music lovers, cochlear-implant users, and their friends and families. The collection of music was commissioned to be listened to equally through cochlear-implanted ears or purely biological ears, and was written in consultation with focus groups of people with diverse hearing.
