Quite simply, Touch the Sound passionately and delightfully shatters the way we think about sound. Gracefully guided by Grammy Award-winning percussionist Dame Evelyn Glennie, who also happens to be deaf, this groundbreaking film opens the door to a world where sight, sound, and touch magically converge to elevate our everyday sensory experiences. Award-winning filmmaker Thomas Riedelsheimer (Rivers and Tides) weaves awe-inspiring performances and street noises with artful silences and visual collages to gently, but powerfully, entrance and engage us in Glennie’s artistry. From improvisation with chopsticks and cans in a Japanese restaurant to a stunning recording session with avant-garde musician Fred Frith at a dilapidated warehouse in Germany, Riedelshemier’s inviting camera work captures Glennie in all her splendor.
