WNYC’s Radio Lab has been making unbelievable sound related programs. This one, among 200+ others, is a cool episode called Musical Language .
Perhaps it’s best to quote their description of this episode:
“In this hour, we examine the line between language and music, how the brain processes sound, and we meet a composer who uses computers to capture the musical DNA of dead composers in order to create new work. We also re-imagine the disastrous 1913 debut of Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring…through the lens of modern neurology.”
