There's sound everywherewe just have to listen.
How can a profoundly deaf person become a musician?
Hearing is a form of touch. I hear it through the body, by opening myself up. Sometimes it almost hits you in the face.
My whole life is about sound. It's what makes me tick as a human being.
Of course, I just assumed that the world was full of solo percussionists. It was only when I studied music full time, in London, that I realized that the career of a full-time classical percussionist did not in fact exist. It had to be created.
