what an experience!

I respectfully ...

I respectfully disagree. There is a distinct difference between listening and hearing music. To listen is merely a physiological/auditory experience. While hearing requires the integration of your conceptual, intellectual and emotional sensibilities. Listening is identification. Hearing is comprehension. Music assimilation requires the exercise of both dynamics.

Man she puts our "expert" drummers to shame!

Oh my word. She ...

Oh my word. She took me on a journey. I think im beginning to understand what she means when she says "listen". During her last piece I gradually began to ignore the sound of the stick hitting the instrument and instead got caugt up in the resonance, you seem to get a physical sensation of the music. It felt like I was being stretched or was pulsating.

She is the ...

She is the Beethoven of the 21st century. As a musician myself, I am truly inspired by this woman's determination, courage, and talent. She is a living testimony to the fact not to let anyone deter you from your dream, no matter what!

@Qpidon she is not deaf in her opppinion, she can hear with her whole body. But her ears can only hear sounds 90 decibel og higher. (so shes allmost totally deaf)

@awfulguitarplucker ...

@awfulguitarplucker - Sure, the human being has endless potential. But our social restrictions and poor abilities to function together peacefully make us a generally terrible race. This woman, though, is an incredible human being. As you imply, she is a reminder to us all that life is beautiful.

so fascinating for me - not just as a percussionist but as someone who can hear! I'd never imagined that a deaf person could play a musical instrument before I heard about Glennie.
