Your Brain on Music: A Story of Song Meets Science

Daniel Levitin, Author, This Is Your Brain on Music
In musical conversation with Alex de Grassi, Grammy Award-nominated Fingerstyle Guitarist

Ever wonder what’s going on in your brain when you tune in to your favorite radio station or hum that song stuck in your head? Humans have been creating and enjoying music for thousands of years, but what really creates the experience? Is the brain of a musician different than the brains of the rest of us? Join us as Levitin and De Grassi jam, chat and foot tap their way through the story of “Music and the Mind Machine.”
