Much is Given to Hearing

In June 2012 I ‘lose’ my hearing. I question the notion of loss, because it permits me to hear differently. I am discovering a whole sonic universe. Entire sound concerts present themselves to me. They are known as tinnitus. I have given them names: birds of paradise, the metal cicada, the stream in the cave, the Arabic song, the neighbour’s radio, the mantra, the end of the TV program, the âoueda (party with live band), the cricket, interstellar capture, flood of the stream, air stewardess call, an angel passing… I draw their scores.
