What Its Like for a Deaf Person to Hear Music for the First Time – Rebecca J. Rosen – The Atlantic

What Its Like for a Deaf Person to Hear Music for the First Time – Rebecca J. Rosen – The Atlantic.

A lovely short piece explaining how it felt for a young man to get hearing aids that  helped him hear and appreciate music for the first time.  He crowd-sourced suggestions to binge on music and reaches, to my mind, an unexpected conclusion for his favourite sound after all this – it’s silence.  It is where he can listen to his thoughts more clearly and enjoy the peace.
