In his 2004 documentary, Touch the Sound, filmmaker Thomas Riedelsheimer takes us on a sensual journey into the life of Evelyn Glennie, the deaf percussionist with a passion for the world of sound. The film is an indepth exploration of her life and her relationship with sound. It invites the viewer to reconceptualise our falsely compartmentalized understandings of the "different" senses – in particular, that of hearing. The film is a captivating experience that should be watched by all – particularly those of us who take our hearing for granted.
A geeky glance at the phenomenon of sound and people who do unconventional things with it.
