The Sound of Bass: how do deaf people experience a party?


On Friday March 13, Why Music is once again bringing deaf and hearing people together to party – Ramon Tapia, Linear Straight, Custom DC and the party’s promotor OBI. will be gracing the decks at Club Wit in Ghent. A Why Music party generally comes with a vibrating dance floor and an aroma jockey, so both deaf and hard hearing people truly get to feel the pounding techno music (and nobody is troubled by that pompous guy in the tank top’s body odour).

But how do people who are deaf and hard of hearing experience music? Do they prefer one genre over another? And how come they like David Guetta so much?
