Week Fourteen: Touch the Sound (2004)

Title: Touch the Sound

Tone: The Zen of Percussion


Director-Thomas Riedelsheimer

Cast- Evelyn Glennie

When: 2004

What: Profile of profoundly deaf solo-percussionist Evelyn Glennie


  • This month we’re profiling films that hopefully motivate or inspire you to accomplish a goal, create something, initiate something you’ve been putting off, and so on.
  • Touch the Sound makes for a good motivator as it showcases how Evelyn Glennie, whose livelihood is music and sound, doesn’t allow her being deaf to impair her creative output.
  • Touch the Sound contains some truly marvelous imagery. The combination of superb cinematography with meticulous sound design create a sense of Evelyn Glennie’s unique perception of sound.
  • I can’t think of much else to write about for this one so below is a lovely trailer which will give you a good sense of the film. Enjoy!
