Project title: Soundscape co-composition and the interpretive listening of people with dementia.

Series of compositions co-produced with people who have early-stage dementia, using location sound recordings. Bringing voices from this section into sound studies discourse, which has been criticised for its bias towards an 'idealised, normal, non-disabled hearing subject' (Sterne 2015).

Supervised by John Drever, Yasmin Gunaratnam
