How to Listen to music with your whole body

In this soaring demonstration, deaf percussionist Evelyn Glennie leads the audience through an exploration of music not as notes on a page, but as an expression of the human experience. Playing with sensitivity and nuance informed by a soul-deep understanding of and connection to music, she talks about a music that is more than sound waves perceived by the human ear. She illustrates a richer picture that begins with listening to yourself, and includes emotion and intent as well as the complex role of physical spaces -- instrument, concert hall and even the bones and body cavities of musician and listener alike.

That was "Amazing". Hearing with your whole body. I always thought it was crazy that a friend of mine could tune his guitar in a really noisy place. He said he could feel the vibrations by holding the guitar really close to his body. Evelyn Glennie is a name I will never forget. Her playing is "Wonderfull"
