MUSIC in MIND is a podcast that explores what music is. I’m a musician. I’m a scholar who studies music perception and cognition. I’m an audio engineer. You might read those qualifications and think that I have answers about music for you, but the truth is that I don’t. I honestly couldn’t even tell you a good definition of music. Why do we impose our will and rattle unsuspecting air molecules over time? Furthermore; why do we like listening to other people’s aural assaults?
I’m tired of not knowing the answer to these kinds of questions, which is why I’m doing this podcast. I’m going to talk to all kinds of people that have some ideas about music: drummers, composers, scientists, educators, singers, producers, and… you get the idea. It’s my hope that each person’s answers, taken as a whole, will answer these big questions.
