Pat Martino Unstrung

Here is the link to the official site for the recent Unstrung movie on Pat Martino’s amazing musical recovery from a brain operation that essentially totally erased all of his musical and artistic knowledge. I am definitely going to order this, not just because I am an admirer of Martino’s playing, but also because the movie interestingly explores the broader implications for cognitive science of the Martino case.

    Ordered, thank you for the pointer.

    Paul Broks’ book
    Into the Silent Land: Travels in Neuropsychology is well worth reading too.

    Fascinating topic. Memory erased, but is the artistic skill apart from that?
