Hear My Eyes screenings are audiovisual experiences that push the conventions of film and sound beyond their traditional forms. Each event consists of a film screening paired with an original score, performed live by local musicians. These events playfully alter the traditional cinema experience, while providing a unique and creative platform for the musicians to engage with.

 
Putting a modern spin on the days when film music was provided by an energetic in-house organist, Hear My Eyes put on special
screenings that pair a recent film
with an original score played
live by local musicians.
— Timeout Melbourne
Is it a film? Is it a live music performance? Good lord, it’s both. A cinematic, sensory overload.
Hear My Eyes will create an audio-visual experience that reclaims the original
conventions of picture and music.
