I think the point here about

I think the point here about how Sean and other deaf artists experience and create music through vibrations is very interesting. I definitely agree that music has a physicality that is really important in how we experience music. For instance, I love watching Taiko Drumming or Drum-line performances, and listening to the music is really only a part of the experience. Especially in Taiko drumming, the drummers have a specific way they move through out the performance, the visuals along with the feeling of the drum vibrating in your chest add another dimension to the music. I don't think I would ever listen to a recording of a drum performance with the same level of awe.
