The Musician and The Composer. "My musical abilities did improve after the stroke...I feel I'm very mechanical in the way I play it lacks a lot of emotion. Its much more abstract now. I can play a guitar but I don't play it like you're supposed to play a guitar, I play it more like a lap guitar; I play it like a piano. The same goes for woodwinds, brass...everything has become a keyboard in my head." Michael Lowery's musical abilities drastically improved after a severe stroke put him into a coma for 3 days. His stroke also triggered his genetically predisposed schizophrenia giving way to a new voice, a new identity - The Composer.
