The Word Blind

‘The Word Blind’ attempts to address the plights of people with sight issues using their genuine gripes about every day occurrences, taking the speech melodies to make the music. Composer Roger Illingworth worked with the people of Sight Concern in a collaborative process to create a cathartic message about the little things that full sighted people take for granted. Nine core participants took part in the production of the piece which lasted 5 minutes. The piece was based on the idea of a complaints choir. The people that took part are registered as blind or  partially sighted. A volunteer from Mind worked with us and assisted with the group.   A Test Beds commission. Test Beds is our new programme to experiment with artists’ work in social settings, getting artists and communities of place/or interest to work together on imaginative creative projects. Six commissions will happen over the next two years in central Bedfordshire. Contact us to find out more about the commissioning process. Test Beds is funded by the LLoyds Bank Foundation.
