Hearing with your body

Posted at 3:28 PM on February 29, 2008 by Fred Child

Evelyn Glennie is a fine Scottish percussionist who has a couple of things in common with Beethoven: she's lost most of her hearing. And she hasn't let that get in the way of making music.

Sorry about the cheesy promo in the opening 30 seconds, but if nothing else, check out her 30 second snare solo at 4:00. And for some fascinating thoughts about what it means to listen to and play music...check out her entire 30 minute talk.
