C4CI Presentation at the NCIUA Summer Meeting

Ref:09 June 2012

Ben Oliver and Rachel van Besouw were invited to give an afternoon presentation on ‘Interactive Music for Cochlear Implant Users’ at the National Cochlear Implant Users Association Summer Meeting at Queen Mary, University of London. The presentation included a talk about how music is processed by cochlear implant and the inspiration for the‘Compositions for Cochlear Implantees’ research project, a practical rhythm activity based on the music workshops from last year, a demonstration of the Interactive Music Awareness Programme and a performance of ‘Loopy Birds’; a piece of music specifically composed for cochlear implant users by Ben.

Feedback from the audience and organisers was extremely motivating!

“I was blown away by your presentation in the afternoon. It was incredibly informative and engaging at the same time”

“Thank you Rachel and Ben for a very entertaining interactive music session at the Annual NCIUA meeting in London last weekend…”

“thank you again for a fantastic presentation and afternoon on Saturday - it really was very well received by everyone!”

Rachel and Ben received a number of great suggestions and comments about extending the Interactive Music Awareness Programme and are looking forward to following these up!

The NCIUA meeting was also used to announce the Compositions for Cochlear Implantees end of project concert and public seminar at the Turner Sims Concert Hall on Saturday 29th September at 1pm! Free tickets are now available from the box office.
