The Mystery of Music According to Science – A Faculty Lecture - Black Box - Belfast

Do you cry every time you hear ‘Tears in Heaven’? Do your feet move uncontrollably when you hear ‘Uptown Funk’? Do you still remember the lyrics to the first ever song you learned in primary school? Music is everywhere; from first wedding dances to national anthems, to every party you’ve ever been to! But why do we love music, and why does it make us think, feel, laugh, cry, and dance? Why are some of us obsessed with heavy metal, while others swear by The Beatles? What kind of brain is wired up to make a musical prodigy…and what’s happening in the mind of someone with two left feet?! Join Emer Maguire, to solve the mystery of music (according to science!)
