框選或點兩下字幕可以直接查字典喔!

I have one resident that barely open her eyes. She didn't respond. As much as I tried almost for two years, no matter what I tried, massage wouldn't work, nothing worked. But when we got introduced to the iPods, and the family told me the things that she liked, it was amazing once we put the iPod on her. She started shaking her feet. She started moving her head. Her son was just amazed. Okay, can we stop, because now I'm getting no...I am seeing her all over again.
一位由我照顧的居住者,她很少張開眼睛。她不會回應。將近二年的時間,我盡可能的試了許多方法,不論我嘗試什麼,按摩沒有幫助,任何方法都沒有用。但當我們引進iPods時,她的家人告訴我她喜歡的音樂,我們為她戴上iPod時,令人驚訝的事情發生了。她開始抖動她的腳。她開始晃動她的腦袋。她的兒子真的很驚訝。好了,我們可不可以先暫停,因為現在我覺得...我彷彿又看到她了。

Hi, Papa! Hi, papa!
嗨,老爸!嗨,老爸!

Huh? How're you doing? Great! Fine! Great! Who am I? I don't know...
嗯?你好嗎?很好啊!很好!很好!我是誰?我不知道...

Wait a minute. I don't know. I don't know.

Ok, it's Cheri.

How long has he been in the nursing home? Approximately ten years. And he's having seizures and my mother couldn't handle him at home. Of course it affected me greatly, because he was always, you know, fun loving, singing, you know, every occasion he would come out with a song, no matter where he was. I remember as a child, he used to walk us down the street, me and my brother, and he would stop and do "Singing In The Rain." He would have us jumping and swinging around poles. He was, you know, he was good. He was always into music, you know, he always loves singing, dancing.
他在養老院己經住多久了?大約十年。他有癲癇症,而我的母親無法在家照顧他。當然這深深影響我,因為他以前總是,你知道的,幽默可愛,總是在唱歌,你知道,不論在那裡,每一個場合,他總能想出一首歌。我記得小時候,他以前時常帶我們上街,我和弟弟,他會停下來唱「萬花嬉春」這首歌。他會讓我們蹦蹦跳跳並圍繞著柱子打轉。你知道,他曾經很健康。他總是熱愛音樂,你知道,他總是愛唱歌、跳舞。

His name is Henry Drayo. Uh-huh.

Henry. Yeah! Henry. Yes, Joe. I found your music. You want...you want your music now?
Henry。是!Henry。是的,Joe。我找到了你想要的音樂。你想要--你現在要聽音樂嗎?

Ok, let me... Let's try your music, okay? And then you tell me if it's too loud or not.
好,讓我...我們來試試你的音樂,好嗎?然後你要告訴我會不會太大。

And then he is given an iPod containing we know his favorite music. And immediately he lights up. His face assumes expression. His eyes open wide. He starts to sing, to rock, and to move his arms and he is being animated by the music.
然後給了他一台iPod,裡面有我們所知他最愛的音樂。然後他立刻發光發亮。他的臉部呈現出表情。眼睛瞪得牛鈴般大。他開始唱歌,搖晃身軀,也開始擺動手臂,音樂賦予他生命。

And he used to always sit on the unit with his head like this.

He didn't really talk to so much people, and then when I introduce the music to him, this is his...his reaction ever since.

The philosopher Kant once called music "the quickening art" and Henry is being quickened. He's being brought to life.

So in some sense, Henry has restored to himself. He has remembered who he is, and he has reacquired his identity for a while through the power of music.

With this beautiful new technology, you can have all the music, which is significant for you in something as big as a match box or whatever. And I think this may be very, very important in helping to animate, organize and bring a sense of identity back to people who are out of it. Otherwise, music would bring him back into it: into their own personhood, their own memories, their own autobiographies.
有了這美好的嶄新科技,在這火柴盒般大小或什麼的裝置中,你能夠擁有所有對你來說很重要的音樂。而我認為這對於幫助那些失去自我認知能力的人去恢復生機、整建並取回自我認知是非常、非常重要的。除此之外,音樂會帶領他回到:回到他們自己的個人特質、自己的回憶以及自己一生回顧。
