There are several ways to experience music; the most traditional way is to hear it live, in the presence of the musicians. Live music can also be broadcast over the radio or television, although this experience is closer to playing back a sound recording or watching a music video. Sometimes, live performances incorporate prerecorded sounds; for example, a DJ uses records for scratching. Of course, you can also create music yourself, by singing, playing a musical instrument, or composing.
Even deaf people can experience music, by feeling the vibrations in their body; the most famous example of a deaf musician is the composer Ludwig van Beethoven, who composed many famous works even after he had completely lost his hearing.
