Music Cognition from Rock Stars
title Seed Salon: David Byrne and Daniel Levitin
description "The singer/songwriter/artist/author enters the Seed Salon to discuss music with the producer/neuroscientist." Language, glossolia, music cognition, studying music, mirror neurons, memory, and more. They consider musical craft and the ability to evoke emotional responses, and consider authenticity for the listener. Byrne says, "You can know what's in a sunset and still be just as awed by it." This interview is a year old but still relevant (except maybe some of what's attributed to the mirror neurons). Levitin has more recently published a book on music archetypes: The World in Six Songs.
