Shot at the TED (Technology Entertainment Design) conferences, which we will talk in a later post, the video below (subtitles available) shows Evelyn Glennie illustrating with differents instruments (drums, xylophone) how listening to music involves much more than simply letting sound waves hit your eardrums.

I need say no more and let you see and listen to the conference of this amazing artist Evelyn Glennie and in a bonus, her duet with Björk. Enjoy!
