Hi Joseph,

 

Ever wondered if the brain communicates between its hemispheres in
music? Always curious about why some brilliant mathematicians also have
high musical ability or how some prodigies like Mozart almost spout
symphonies from the womb. Up until the 20th century I guess apart from a
lucky few, we could not share each nation's music very well. Now we can
and despite the very different cultural origins - so much of it seems to
be aprt  of us and is extraordinarily evocative. We commonly here that
God is a mathematician and that we might be able to communicate with
extra terrestrial intelligences with mathematics....but music seem
hardwired in too. How extraordinary that you tell us that what we feel
is actually true...music heals our brains..but what kind? All - or is
Mozart better than Van Morrison or Meatloaf?


Steve

go together. Now science is confirming that those abilities are linked
in the brain, a finding that might even lead to betterstroke treatments

Studies have found overlap in the brain's processing of language and
instrumental music, and new research suggests that intensive musical
therapy may help improve speech in stroke patients

of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

"Writing about music is like dancing about architecture." That
statement, which is most often attributed to Elvis Costello, is quoted
in this bright, complex and occasionally profound book, and it
highlights just what a tricky task the science writer Philip Ball has
set himself. Because here, he's trying to examine what music is, how it
works and why it exists. It might seem strange to ask the seemingly
basic question of what music is, given the ubiquity of it in the world
(no human culture has developed without some form of musical
<http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/books/reviews/the-music
-instinct-by-philip-ball-1902642.html>  expression), yet it is
incredibly difficult to define what we mean by music.
