  • In RIVERS AND TIDES, German documentarian Thomas Riedelsheimer explored the enchanting and hypnotic "nature" art-installations of Andy Goldsworthy. Now, with TOUCH THE SOUND, he turns his camera on nearly deaf percussionist Evelyn Glennie, who experiences sound as a kind of touching or vibration. Using Glennie's unique musical sensibilities as a jumping-off point, Riedelsheimer introduces the viewer to an amazing sonic realm that we all know but rarely appreciate--a world of tapping, sputtering, clanging, rustling rhythms. The drone of a suitcase's wheels on concrete interrupted by the periodic zing of a zipper, the crackling of an icy pond, the echoic clang of metal scaffolding struck by Glennie's shoe--these sounds become, in Riedelsheimer's skilled hands, moments of revelation. Watching this film, viewers will feel like they are hearing the world for the first time.
