When Silence Sings
Hear Venice through the ears of some of its residents in a composed radio piece by DinahBird for BBC R3's "Between the Ears' on Saturday 22nd November at 9.30pm (GMT)
Venice is a well known tourist stop, but how many people wander off the official paths and stop to listen to the sounds of the city?
In this sonic reflection, we hear Venice through the ears of some of its residents, including Tonie, a Norwegian psychologist who has been deaf from birth. She leads us down alleyways and into intimate little pockets of the city, all the while meditating on what role not being able to hear has played in her life, and in turn, inviting us to reflect on how we listen to our everyday lives
First broadcast on BBC R3'son 22nd November at 9.30pm G.M.T
