It weaves its way through a startling world of sound and silence, via the ears and brains of these extraordinary people as they try to re-discover music after deafness: a dancer deaf since birth, a young pianist who lost her hearing as a baby, and a music critic facing sudden partial hearing loss. Music is one of the greatest of all human experiences; millions of us fall under its spell every day, and it engages more parts of the brain than any other human activity. But 1 in 7 of us will experience deafness in our lifetime. What if you lost the ability to hear music? Could you find it again… and could music find you? Featuring: Dr David Eagleman, Philip Ball, Professor Nigel Osborne, Dr Katie Overy, Professor David Huron, Dr Robert Zatorre.
And if you've forgotten, there are plenty of culturally deaf people who do enjoy music in their own way either visually or audiologically, or both.
Remember this music video?
Music is a very important part of me and my life since I play the piano by playing mostly Ragtime music such as here with me playing a piece in this video on my Ragtime Piano blogsite. I can relate very well to these people when it comes music and dealing with hearing loss.
