Snippet from interview with Leslie Heindel of Be New Orleans on Deaf Child:
4. What is lesser known about your business that you wish more people knew?
Deaf culture is important to me. I’m currently learning sign language. I want the ASL and hearing impaired world to have more options. I wear hearing aids and cannot hear out of my left ear. When I help produce music, I don’t need to hear all the frequencies because I can see them on the boards. I can also feel the vibrations.
I also have this piece of equipment that I can plug into a mixer and it goes straight into my hearing aids.
People do not protect their hearing enough – you need to wear earplugs at shows!
