When he was a child, Derek became fascinated by sounds and began playing every sound he heard as a musical note. Unable to read Braille, Derek started to learn music by treating it like a vocabulary.
Derek is known as a savant, one of just a few known cases in the world. This means that his brain seems unable to process simple tasks but excels in one specific area.
Daniel investigates Derek’s musical genius and the amazing power of the human brain.
