A Beautiful Look at Sound

by Thomas Riedelsheimer

The documentary Touch the Sound is remarkable for the subject matter as well as the execution. While it is about a remarkable musician, Evelyn Glennie, and the “sound journey” that is taken is fascinating, what surprised me the most was the visual beauty in how the film was shot and edited by Thomas Riedelsheimer. Evenlyn Glennie is deaf and that has enabled her to increase her sensitivity to the sounds in the world that you can feel. My perception of sound and how it affects people was changed by the film and through was Glennie said and did. An important and entertaining story for anyone who is interested in either sound, music or humanity.
