This Is Your Brain on Music: The Science of a Human Obsession – Paperback
An excellent, well-written book on the magic that happens when you listen to music. The perfect gift for musicians and music lovers. This book exposes how the brain processes music and how different parts of the brain interact to produce what we interpret as music. Author, Daniel Levitin, asks intriguing questions which we rarely think about , e.g. what is music? The simple answer is of course, music is organized sound.
In this groundbreaking union of art and science, rocker-turned-neuroscientist Daniel J. Levitin explores the connection between music—its performance, its composition, how we listen to it, why we enjoy it—and the human brain.
“Every musician, at whatever level of skill, should read this book.”—Howie Klein, former president, Sire and Reprise/Warner Brothers Records.
