Hidden Jams Creates Unique Silent Concert Experience with AudioFetch

By | Customer Spotlight, Music, Silent Disco | No Comments

We’re continually blown away by the creativity of our customers, and the clever ways they come up with to bring communities together with AudioFetch. A recent application by an Italian organization was so clever, we just had to share it!

Unsurpassed Music in Unconventional Locations

Hidden Jams is a one-of-a-kind project focused on creating unique musical experiences to showcase, celebrate and promote the excellence of the Bel Pease (i.e., the beautiful country of Italy). According to their Instagram account, “Hidden Jams takes music everywhere encapsulating the most special moments and the essence of those places in high-quality video, whether it’s a village that smells of history, a breathtaking landscape or the top of a mountain.”

Silent Concert in the Open Air

The Turin-based organization has recently launched a silent concert series and hosted their first open-air event earlier this month on a quiet plot at Cascina Mallona in Savigliano. With a tree-speckled vista and hip camper van as a backdrop, a lone musician played to an intimate group of attendees listening via the AudioFetch app on their smartphones. 

To any onlookers not listening with AudioFetch, it might seem as if the musician was just miming the performance. But for those streaming with AudioFetch, they were able to experience the music as if they were attending a personal concert.  

Simple Setup and Intuitive App

Within just a few short weeks after receiving their AudioFetch, Hidden Jams was already making use of the audio over WiFi streaming device for this first event. The organization used this event as a pilot to test the system and work out any logistical aspects, and based on their feedback  (“It was a success!” said Alice F of Hidden Jams), they’re looking forward to more silent concerts in the near future. 

Check out a couple of photos from the picturesque event and follow Hidden Jams on Instagram for more photos and videos.

World Lutheran Deaf Outreach Ministry Provides Hearing Assistance with AudioFetch

By | AudioFetch News, Churches, Hearing Assistance | No Comments

We’re proud to work with businesses and organizations that help to bring communities together and raise awareness about hearing health around the world. We wanted to highlight a commendable organization that we’ve recently had the pleasure of working with to provide an assistive listening solution–World Lutheran Deaf Outreach Ministry.

Meet World Lutheran Deaf Outreach Ministry

World Lutheran Deaf Ministry Logo

World Lutheran Deaf Outreach Ministry (WLDO) seeks to connect with the 98% of deaf and hard of hearing individuals who do not attend church because of hearing concerns. Various factors–sentence structure, passive voice, inefficient hearing assistance devices–have historically made attending services a challenge, but WLDO is changing that! Through resources, training, worship, and small group study, WLDO is helping deaf and hard of hearing people come together where they previously couldn’t. 

WLDO has deaf ministries in locations around the country, including Emmanuel Lutheran Church of the Deaf in Milwaukee, WI, Our Savior Deaf Lutheran Church in Madison, WI, Holy Cross Lutheran Church in Delavan, WI, Life in Christ Church in Peoria, AZ, Trinity Lutheran Church in Litchfield Park, AZ, Holy-Three-In-One Lutheran Deaf Church in Houston, TX, and St. Paul Lutheran Church in Jackson, MS. 

How WLDO Discovered AudioFetch for Assistive Listening

We were introduced to WLDO through a customer that had previously purchased our home audio streaming solution, AudioFetch Home. “My hearing is significantly impaired (60% loss) and I really can’t understand TV programs,” says Galen Stanely, who purchased AudioFetch Home in November 2020. “With AudioFetch Home streaming to my Bluetooth hearing aids via my iPhone, the audio is crystal clear. I use it every day.” 

After having such a positive experience with Home, Galen recommended AudioFetch to his pastor. “Our WLDO pastor ministers full time to hearing impaired and deaf people in our area and all across the US,” Galen added. “He uses the highly mobile AudioFetch Express for both worship and small group study while visiting many churches and congregations.”

The Most Affordable Assistive Listening Solution for Churches

Houses of worship around the world use AudioFetch Express as simple, affordable, and flexible assistive listening devices for churches, as well as to provide real-time translation services. AudioFetch eliminates the need for maintenance-intensive and unhygienic assistive listening devices or expensive and complex hearing loop systems. It’s simple to install and easy for listeners to use via the free AudioFetch app on their smartphone or tablet. 

If you’re looking for an effective and cost-efficient way to provide accessibility for your hearing-impaired members, AudioFetch is the ideal solution! Contact us by calling 844-HI-FETCH or scheduling an appointment to discuss your house of worship application and free get a quote.
