Touch the Sound (CD)

£8.00

The original soundtrack from Thomas Riedelsheimer’s award-winning film Touch the Sound. An unforgettable sonic journey with Evelyn Glennie, Fred Frith and a very diverse range of guest artists. At the heart of Every life-form there is rhythm. Movement, flow, change, renewal and repetition are all based in rhythm – and it is only in rhythm that we can experience time. Without vibration, without oscillation, there is static. There is nothing. Stability and solidarity are illusions. Everything oscillates and vibrates – from the bridge of steel and concrete, to the energy shells dancing around the atom. Even colours oscillate at different frequencies. We recognise and experience our world through rhythm. Everything vibrates – everything ‘speaks’ It is, in essence, a universe of sound.
