An overview of Isaac's research project "From Perspective" which aims to provide end-of-life hospice patients with the opportunity to leave audio-recorded memories for their loved ones in a unique and interesting way. By sharing this work, we can also consider the memories and stories that we want to leave behind for others, while we have the opportunity to do so. By recording voice, we have the ability to capture inflections, accents and manners of speech that are so powerful in representing a sense of self that is unique to an individual. This talk will explore the different ways in which we are able to do this, asking the question, ‘’What’s a memory that you want to leave?’’ Isaac Gibson is an award-winning Northern Irish DJ, producer and sound designer. He has more than ten years of experience in the music industry and is currently studying a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) at the School of Arts, English and Languages at Queen's University Belfast. His work focuses on music technology, socially engaged sonic arts and sound design. More specifically, the use of creative arts and music-based interventions in palliative hospice care to improve a patient's mental health, well-being and quality of life. In recent years, he has worked on the music and sound design of many short films and theatrical productions presented at the Lyric Theatre, the MAC Theatre and various other international institutions. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
