I’m revisiting the article linked by the previous post. As AdFreak noted, if this doesn’t move you than nothing will.
PS: Terry Pratchett once noted that losing your hearing wasn’t always a totally bad thing for a composer; as he put it, being deaf doesn’t mean that you stop hearing the music. You just stop hearing the distractions. That might just be a comforting lie that hearing people tell themselves, but it’s a nice comforting lie none the less.
