Critic Reviews for Touch The Sound
A coy yet worthy profile of celebrated Scottish percussionist Evelyn Glennie.
Touch the Sound is remarkable not only because of Glennie's story -- a clinically deaf Grammy-winning musician who has played with the world's great orchestras -- but for the way Riedelsheimer uses sound.
The movie makes an interesting addition to what could become Riedelsheimer's evolving and extraordinary gallery of movies that bring the creative process to life.
It will be frustrating if you expect narrative and linear development. But if you take it on as a new point of view, valuable even if you don't completely comprehend it yet, Touch the Sound is worth the trip.
Audience Reviews for Touch The Sound
I think it goes to prove that you can make a living and be a total weirdo. This woman should hook up with the Soundtracker. He hasn't figured out how to go around listening to things and make money off of it.
Interesting exploration of sound in a documentary about Evelyn Glennie, world class percussionist. Doubly interesting because she's also deaf.
This doc was visually dynamic for a movie about sound. It made me wish I had a great audio set-up for my TV. (Damn I wish I had money) The movie is about a drummer and her appreciation of rhythm and how music is everywhere and just the vibrations can inspire. Then, there are other surprises as the documentary keeps on. The movie has great sound captures from everyday life and while the grand central scene is great in it?s dichotomy of being both focused on the subject but capturing how everyone else who can hear it responds is great. And seeing her walk through Japan, especially the sensory overload of Shibuya and Shinjuku was fun. My only real complaint is that is does dwell quite a bit on parts of the story that really aren?t very exciting except for the technical elements.
