Not many years ago, the concepts music, sign language and their interaction would have been unthinkable, much less by Deaf people. Today we can combine music, Deaf and gesture, concepts that seem seem apparently opposite. Music, associated with sound, can be silent and visual. But how? In a first phase, we will learn about the Deaf person, Sign Language, its myths and realities. We will also know different ways of making music in LGP, and how new musical concepts can influence the structural development of a Sign Language.
