How do deaf people experience electronic music? Dorothy Allen-Pickard and Antoine Marinot explore that question in our latest film.
“We listen to a lot of electronic music, both in and outside of club environments,” said Antoine Marinot, who co-directed the film with Dorothy Allen-Pickard. “Because of my partial deafness, and the prospect of losing my hearing completely, I am increasingly aware of issues relating to deafness. The conversations we had while making this film have infinitely expanded our interest in the subject and reframed our conceptual understanding of how we all experience sound, music and vibrations.”
A Sonic Pulse was commissioned by Resident Advisor Films in partnership with Open City Documentary Festival.
