The film is a paean to the variety of sound in our world, sound that we experience very differently from how Evelyn Glennie does.

It doesn't help when Glennie tries to elucidate her feelings about nature and music in holistic, broad strokes that border on nonsense.

Riedelsheimer sees Glennie as an angel of hyperawareness and possessor of special spiritual wisdom.

Unfortunately, a good deal of Touch the Music is devoted to vacuous interviews with Glennie, who seems positively incapable of saying anything substantial.
September 23, 2005
There is a maddening sense of dislocation through much of the movie -- a feeling that genuinely fascinating questions have been squeezed out by woo-woo philosophizing and material (like Glennie's brief return to the family farm) of only minor import.

Touch the Sound is a completely joyful moviegoing experience and, like the best movies, it takes you to a place you've never been.

This concentration on the physical quality of sounds is a mesmerizing corroboration of Glennie's belief that tones, timbre, and tempo are in "everything we see."

You'll either sail along with it contentedly, or you'll start to think halfway through that maybe the movie could have been a lot shorter and made its points just as well.

[A] fascinating portrait.
September 23, 2005
It's a spacious, hauntingly meditative film that thankfully does not dwell on the implications of Glennie's deafness.

A coy yet worthy profile of celebrated Scottish percussionist Evelyn Glennie.

This impressionistic documentary is a mystical exploration of the sensory world as experienced by a musician who lost most of her hearing as a teenager.

Beautifully shot and filled with gorgeous music, but one of the most inspiring things about it is the way it erases the idea of Glennie's deafness as a handicap.

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.

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.
