Last week on tele I watched the first episode of this two part documentary titled, The Music Instinct.
The program's goal is to explore and explain humanity's link to music, and its effects/influence on the human brain.
The first episode was a patchwork of scientific research and personal anecdotes. I was particularly interested when the program delved into the universality of emotional responses to particular musical elements.
While I felt the first episode pursued too much in a short length of time, I will be tuning in for the second round tonight. The link to abctv is provided for those of you interested in having a look-see.
You may also be interested in links to scientific research and music.
