Salt Lake City, UT – Daniel Levitin spent over a decade producing music, and he met many talented musicians that just never rose above obscurity. This led him to questions like why some songs move us while others leave us cold. Today, Levitin is on the faculty of Psychology at McGill University, and he's written This is Your Brain on Music. Wednesday he talks to Doug about how the human brain and music interact and how the process gives rise to thoughts, feelings and the experience of beauty.
