Evelyn Glennie: How to listen to music with your whole body

From TED: 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.

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.
