About the Film

What if you lost the ability to hear music? Could you find it again…
and could music find you?

Lost and Sound is a moving creative documentary, made by a partially
deaf filmmaker. It weaves its way through a startling world of sound
and silence, via the ears and brains of three extraordinary people, as
they try to re-discover music: a dancer deaf since birth, a young
pianist who lost her hearing as a baby, and a music critic facing
sudden partial deafness.

Music is one of the greatest of all human experiences; millions of us
fall under its spell every day, and it engages more parts of the brain
than any other human activity. But 1 in 7 of us will experience hearing
loss. Does the end of hearing have to mean the end of music?

Featuring: Dr David Eagleman, Philip Ball, Professor Nigel Osborne, Dr
Katie Overy, Professor David Huron, Dr Robert Zatorre
