Listen to music with your whole body

This video cut is from a combined concert and 'class' with Evelyn Glennie, a renowned percussionist who not only is a virtuoso on her instruments but also deaf, something that might seem incompatable to most people but obviously is not.

She 'listens' to the music through her body and this is what she is trying to explain to the audience.
She also underlines the fact that even if you are a hearing person, you don't perceive the music in the same way, not even acoustically. In a concert hall it depends on where you ar seated and this is something one might forget. Most people probably think they perceive the music in approximately the same way.
