Ears Back, Eyes Forward brings together 11 artists whose video works engaged us in the past year. Most of the artists represented have strong sonic roots and branches in their highly varied outputs. Even those who may not consider themselves sound artists contributed pieces with a canny ear for detail and timing. Throughout this reel, the artists use sound and silence to take a listen back onto memories of communication, loss, and transition.
