A Disconnected Rhythm is an arts documentary and moving story of how a composer, a team of dedicated medical professionals and patients with Parkinson’s Disease come together to create an inspirational piece of music. It follows composer Ian Wilson’s collaboration with the National Centre for Arts & Health as he creates a work of art inspired by Parkinson’s Disease. Produced by John Kelleher Media for TV3 and under the BAI Sound & Vision Scheme, the documentary charts Ian’s five week stint as Composer in Residence at Tallaght Hospital.
The documentary follows the project’s progress, primarily through Ian’s eyes, as he attends consultations and treatments, meets patients and their families and observes the doctors who are passionate about the therapeutic value of art.
The programme aired on 29 December 2014 and is now available on TV3 player: http://www.tv3.ie/3player/show/706/88401/0/A-Disconnected-Rhythm
