Jimmy Brown - 17th Apr 2014

For this moving and beautiful promo to Jamie xx's Sleep Sound, artist and director Sofia Mattioli invited the Manchester Deaf Centre Youth Group to participate in a workshop where they were encouraged to dance with her and experience Jamie's track through her movements.

Over the course of one day, the 13 members of the centre - ages ranging from 5 to 27 - responded to Sophie's movement and the vibrations in the air given off by the song.
