Musical Perception of a Deafblind Cochlear Implant User


Russ Palmer, a deafblind songwriter/musician and music therapist sings and plays the guitar and piano.  How does a deafblind person with two cochlear implants perceive music, hearing artificial sounds?  A remarkable achievement if one considers that Russ was born severly deaf and has learnt to develop his residual hearing and musicality.  He is blind through a condition known as Usher Syndrome which has affected both his hearing and sight.

The DVD includes extracts from a concert performance in Finlandia Hall, Helsinki in Finland 2012 and interviews from professionals, friends and the band members, who co-operated with Russ over the years.  It also recalls those personal obstacles Russ experienced in preparation to do a concert for the first time.
