The Listening Studio consists of an audio and video installation used as an audio test within a custom designed laboratory space. It is a project created through collaboration between POD DESIGN+MEDIA and sound designer and artist Daniel Perlin. The Studio is permanently installed in the Center for Hearing and Communication in lower Manhattan, New York. The installation/test consists of immersive video and audio environments. These environments contain a series of conversations that switch backgrounds and ambient audio in real time. These environments challenge the spectator/patient to listen closely and try to understand the conversations. The test, run by a trained laboratory technician, is intended first as therapy for those who have hearing aids or cochlear implants, so that they may test their hearing in varying situations. They may choose to have their hearing adjusted based upon their results. The test is open to the public as well, and will be available for anyone to experience as a spectator/patient. The room contains a 5.1 surround-sound system, 16 HD videos on a flat screen monitor and a custom musical keyboard which serves as the testing interface. The Listening Studio is permanently installed in the Center for Hearing and Communication on 50 Broadway, 6th floor, in lower Manhattan, New York. As the Listening Studio contained within a medical practice within an office building, it requires an appointment to visit. Please call +1 917-305-7700 or email appointments@chchearing.org to schedule a visit.
