My Short Film

Hi Friends,

Last year I met Bob, an audiophile who challenged my assumptions about what is possible. My short documentary film, Listening, was made with the help of John DeVore (DeVore Fidelity), Erik Owen (Gig Harbor Audio) and several of my film professional friends. Please have a look and let me know what you think. It’s only 8 min. Thanks!

Sometimes it’s good to be reminded that it is the music and the enjoyment that matters most, not the latest new equipment. This was very humbling to see. Thank you, and Bob

Heart warming and touching - just wonderful.

It makes me realise just how lucky I am to press a button and hear music.

I really enjoyed your film, Chris. I found it inspiring and affirming in equal measure. Thanks for making and for posting here.

p.s. I was also reminded of a story I was told about a Naim customer who had a habit of every so often blowing the tweeters and drivers in his DBLs. On about the third occasion of this happening, one of the Naim guys went round to his house to investigate further. What he found was that the customer was mostly deaf, so would lie on the floor between the DBLs and turn them up very loud and then listen through the vibration running through the floor into his body.

That’s just lovely. It asks so many questions yet simply answers them.

Lovely film, Chris. Bob was wearing the t-shirt and he mentioned Jerry G so I expected some Dead on the soundtrack!
