Very interesting article about her work with master musicians suffering from dementia.<br /> <br /> From the article: At first glance, she was elderly and delicate &ndash; a woman in her 90s with a declining memory.

In this immersive performance, we had the sense that, rather than defaulting to the story's obvious tragic details, Berger illuminate a single, more subtle element - the outraged bewilderment we often feel in the face of unimaginable horror.&quot;<br /> <p>&nbsp;</p><p><a href="" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Wed, 03 Feb 2016 20:34:38 +0000 networth 4156 at Issue 21 of the Csound Journal Released Issue 21 (Fall 2015)&nbsp;of the Csound Journal has been released!
