About the Show
Go on a voyage of how our brains process music and how our culture shapes our musical preferences – helping us understand our motives, fears, desires, and memories. At every turn and at every stage of our lives, nature and nurture forge the uniquely human obsession with music. Combining the cutting-edge experiments of top neuroscientists and the experiences of top musicians such as Sting, Michael Buble, Feist and Wyclef Jean, this explorative journey reveals why music is so important in our lives. It examines our collective passion for music and illuminates how the brain uses music to create human experience.
