This is your brain on Levitin

MP3 podcast CBC Interview with Daniel Levitin, ex-hitmaker producer turned neurologist and author of This is Your Brain On Music.

Why do we hear some sounds as music, and other sounds as noise? What’s the critical relationship between anticipation and satisfaction that drives music? Just what happens when the human brain and music become dance partners? And what roles do the elements we call rhythm, harmony, melody and timbre play in that dance?

This is part of a 6-part series on the CBC The Nerve program, and full episode was posted at http://www.cbc.ca/radio2/features/theNerve/audio/nerveEp1.mp3 where you can get 5 more by just changing the digit.
