Hidden Voice ‘gives a voice’ to people living with dementia by using the melodies and rhythms in their speech to create a powerful and emotional musical experience.
Live musicians, audio and film take us into the innermost thoughts of the people on the screen whilst celebrating the beautiful melodies in their speech. Described by NHS Clinical Director for Dementia Professor Alistair Burns as: a unique relationship between music and dementia.
Hidden Voice was premiered in May 2014 at the Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral by an ensemble of musicians from the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra.
