Can we have a symphony for the deaf? Can you hear music without the sense of hearing? Inspired by a true story, Maurice’s Symphony is a new film that tells the story of Maurice Matters who loses his hearing in an industrial accident and then, through a revolutionary procedure, prepares to enjoy his love of classical music once more. It’s been made by a cast of many passionate people, lead by Alex Nakone and Andrei Gostin.

We discuss

  • How the story came into Alex’s world via a patient, Ross Martin and his history with otosclerosis
  • Why steampunk and what is steampunk
  • How did you get this cast of actors and crew, including Nicholas Hope
  • What is happening to community TV station 44

Suggested Tweet text: Maurice’s Symphony by 2 #Adelaide #filmmakers is a #steampunk story about overcoming #deafness.
