How to listen

I dove into this video without preamble, without reading preliminary descriptions, and found percussionist and composer Evelyn Glennie simply amazing. Glennie gives an inspiring talk — and spectacular performance — that winds up being not just about how to listen to music with your whole body, but ultimately about how to be truly aware of other people and completely alive to the world.

And she blew me away even before the 10:27 mark in the video, when I found out… well, just watch.
