The Music of Light
The Extraordinary Story of Hikari and Kenzaburo OeUnknown - 1998
Hikari Oe was born with a herniated brain, a condition so severe that the only treatment available was an operation that would save his life but leave him permanently brain-injured. Now thirty-four, Hikari has an I.Q. of 65, limited language and motor skills and an inability to express emotions clearly. Yet he can remember every piece of music he has ever heard and his classical-style chamber music compositions have broken sales records around the world. The Music of Light is a remarkable and inspiring tale that explores the miraculous power of creativity.
