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.
