Music is a fundamental part of many people's lives but have you ever stopped to wonder what you would do and how you would live without music if you lost your hearing? A new British documentary premiering at South By Southwest next week follows the lives of three people who are on a quest to rediscover music after facing hearing loss--one of the individuals featured in Lost And Sound is a music critic who experienced hearing loss in his 50's. The film explores retraining one's brain and body in order to process music, vibrations, and sounds in a different way.
So far the only scheduled screenings for Lost And Sound will be next week in Austin, but it's likely more will be announced in the near future. In the meantime, watch the trailer for the film and listen to a short BBC interview with the director of the film, Lindsey Dryden, who herself has been partially deaf since the age of three and considers herself to be an obsessive music lover.
