Diabetes: Not My First Musical Illness

7 Feb

I’ve been asked to speak at the Health Talks 2014 event here in Vancouver at the end of February. As I prepare my Pecha Kucha presentation, focusing on Diagnosis: Diabetes, I realize the importance that a piece I wrote years ago has had on the development and direction of my career.

That piece was Alzheimer’s Variations – a piece for solo piano that embodies Alzheimer’s disease in a piece of music.

I’ll be sure to post the video of my Health Talks presentation when it’s available, but for now, please watch and share this video of a TED Talk I did in the Fall.
