*Music for Cochlear Implants*

Delighted to announce the release of the CD with the first concert of music for Cochlear Implant users in Spain.

The concert ¨music for cochlear implants¨(musIC), live music experience was designated either for people with hearing loss or normal hearing people. Various musicians from the area of Barcelona, presented their works and improvised in the same time that music visualizations representing the sound spectra of the musical signals were projected on screen.

Regarding the sound processing , the aim was to map/convert the dynamic range of the individual groups to an appropriate more limited range, for its amplification and adressing via magnetic loop as well as the investigation of music perception improvement from part of the users. In this topic, we will discuss the implementation of sound processing algorithms used for the visualizations, the dynamics processing, as well as the problems occurred and make estimations and conclusions for a possible
improvement in a similar approach.

You can get the Album through the following link:

For any information on Sound and Music for CI, i would be pleased to get your communication and feedback

Enjoy the recording!
