Touch the Sound
Time Out says
A coy yet worthy profile of celebrated Scottish percussionist Evelyn Glennie,
Riedelsheimer's film opens with her banging on a tremendous gong until the noise
becomes almost deafening—ironic considering that she happens to be severely
hearing-impaired. Glennie travels the globe, drumming on New York City rooftops,
visiting her family in Aberdeen and collaborating with guitarist Fred Firth in
an abandoned factory in northern Germany. The duo can seemingly make music out
of anything; along similar lines, the director presents a wonderful world of
sounds—faucets dripping, high heels clacking, traffic roaring—that suggests
Glennie's rich, private world.
