Almost Live episode #150

Part memoir, part scientific inquiry and part love song to listening

Bring your popcorn and join us for this month’s audio play!

Zorana shares her real-life story about discovering her love of music. A child of Pakistani immigrants who grew up in the suburbs of Toronto, Zorana’s obsession with sound began at school. There she learned to play the flute at band camp, using her imagination to play the notes. When her teacher instructs her to visualize the notes in her mind, she discovers she can play the music she sees in her imagination. Suddenly becomes keenly aware of the sounds around her, including the angry voices of her parents as they fight. She loses herself in the music she compiles as mixtapes on her double-cassette player.
