Now?

Let's try your music, okay?

And then you tell me if it's too

Loud or not, okay?

Music is inseparable

From emotion.

So it's not just

A physiological stimulus.

If it works at all, it

Will call the whole person...

The many different parts of

Their brain, and the memories

And emotions which go with it.

He is my lord

I'm supposed to sing with

This?

You can if you like.

I'm so in love

With you...

ooh

ooh

When I first met him, he was

Very isolated, and he

Used to always sit on the unit

With his head like this...

he didn't really talk

To much people, and then when

I introduced the music to him,

This is his reaction ever since.

Ooh

I'm so in love with you

ooh

Henry waking up did

Something to all of us...

Everyone in the room felt it.

So in love with my god

so in love with you, god

I'm so in love with you, god

ooh

wherever it be

The philosopher Kant once

Called music

"The quickening art,"

And Henry is being quickened,

He is being brought to life.

Yeah?

I'm going to take the music

For one second, okay, just to

Ask you a few

Questions, okay?

How awake was he?

I'm gonna give it

Back to you.

Was he still lost

In his dementia?

Or had the music

In some way changed that?

Henry?

Yeah?

Do you like the iPod?

Do you like the music you're

Hearing?

Yes.

Tell me about your music.

I don't... I don't...

I don't have one, I mean.

Do you like music?

Yeah, I'm

Crazy about music.

Used to play beautiful music,

Beautiful sounds.

Did you play music when you

Were... Did you like music

When you were young?

Yes. Yes.

I went to big dances and things.

What was your favorite music

When you were young?

Well, I guess...

well, cab Calloway was

My number one band guy I liked.

Good?

Yeah.

What was your favorite song?

Oh.
