"The universe is a symphony and we are its instruments."
- Michael Boidy

Mike broke his back in a helicopter crash. He found deep healing in using sound. Mike is shooting, directing, and producing a feature-length documentary about the healing power of sound entitled Heart Beat. He shares his story in this TEDx video.
