The Music/Brain Connection

by David Cramer Lyon

I’ve always held the belief that music is integral to life itself. We can no more live without music than we can live without sunlight, sleep, or human touch. New insights are discovered frequently on the ways we are unconsciously connected with music. I recently found this article by Elizabeth Landau about the upcoming conference in Chicago of the Association of Psychological Science. One of the topics of the conference is ‘Music, Mind, and Brain’, and among the speakers is renowned bassist Victor Wooten.
