In this hour of Radiolab, we examine the line between language and music.
What is music? Why does it move us? How does the brain process sound, and why are some people better at it than others?
Earworms, tonal languages and perfect pitch, sound and touch, universal melodies, dissonance binges and the curious tale of Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring, and the infamous David Cope and his musical Frankenstein monster, EMI.
In short, a lovely, stimulating way to spend an hour.
