Sound Affects

In 2004’s It’s All Gone Pete Tong, a popular club DJ loses his hearing, retreats from his adoring public, and goes into hiding. He surfaces some time later, a master on the decks — despite his disability. It was a good story. Only problem, it wasn’t true (though you wouldn’t know it by how straight the mockumentary played it). Touch the Sound tells a similar tale. This time, however, the story is true. Grammy-winning Scottish percussionist Evelyn Glennie is very real — and very deaf. And in this winning documentary, she proves to be an innovative instrumentalist — who feels rhythms through her body — capable of making music out of anything: scraps of metal, pavement, even a collaborator’s back. It’s a fascinating portrait of an indomitable artist.
