At age 8, world renowned, Grammy Award-winning, 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 with Fred Frith, to performing at the Cabrillo Festival in Santa Cruz, where she’ll return for the upcoming 2017 season. The award-winning documentary was directed by Thomas Riedelsheimer (Rivers and Tides), and this screening will be followed by a Q&A with Evelyn Glennie!
