Something in the pause (audio recording)

The idea behind this story was to find a way to describe an arts project that involved an artist, an informatics specialist and a man with a liking for music. The man in question had a learning disability, a sight impairment and physical disability, which meant he was reliant on others choosing what he listened to. Artist Steve Hollingsworth began creating a sound system which could be operated with one simple hand movement, enabling the man to select what he felt like listening to from a library of sounds.

Together, the artist and the informatics specialist adapted an mp3 player. The sound equipment was installed in the man's bedroom.

Writer Nicola White created a short story. She turned a short story about a sound project into a sound work itself, creating an inspiring work from an equally inspiring project.
