Today, in France, 9 out of 10 deaf children are equipped with hearing aids to improve communication. However, these devices only allow them to hear voices... not music. What a pity, in a digital world where music has never been so accessible.
Damien Quintard, 27 years old, is a sound engineer and founder of The Mono Company and Sound X. Passionate about sound science and physics, he obtained an EMMY AWARD in 2015, at only 23, for the opening ceremony of the Baku Olympic Games.
For a long time, he has been aware of disabilities and has always wanted to be able to put his skills at the service of people with disabilities.
Thanks to INJS, Damien Quintard works directly with young deaf people and deaf professionals to understand their problems. Together, they are developing a system that will allow deaf people to feel sound frequencies through vibration.
