Deaf hack

Wonderful story about a guy who got involved with reprogramming his cochlear implant to improve his hearing.

This reminded me very strongly of "Testimony of Pilot" by Barry Hannah. The narrator was the lead drummer in his high school band, and their best song was Bolero. The narrator goes on to lose his hearing in his young adulthood.
