Touch the Sound
At age 8, Scottish percussionist Evelyn Glennie realized she was going deaf. A high school teacher advised her to practice without a hearing aid, responding to the music with her other senses. This documentary follows her travels as she demonstrates her ability to play music using vibrations and other tactile sensations. Included is everything from public performances at Grand Central Station in New York City to collaborative work on an improvised album in an abandoned factory in Berlin.
