How Music Blows Your Mind

In this speech, a otolaryngologist (that’s an ear surgeon, for those of you keeping score) discusses the impact of music on your brain, the mystery of how the brain processes music, and the miracle of what improvisational music (jam sessions, jazz, freestyle hip-hop, drum circles) really is.  Music is one of the true mysteries throughout mankind (every culture has their music) that both separates us (our preferences) and unites us (our experience of it).  Learn a bit out yourself and enjoy some music along the way.



About carpebootium

I am a modern-day pirate. I travel the world and trade in today's currency, information. I sail through opportunity, comedy, history and strategy to turn turbulent into tournament, chaotic into cathartic, and embarrassing into emboldening. There are none who should fear me save two: Those who have what I want and those who get in my way. Are you done sailing your calm waters with strong undertow? Have you your fill of empty treasure and oasis destinations? Well good...come and join my crew! We're a lively lot from all over the world but be forewarned...anyone attempting to drop anchor will be thrown overboard, shot, harpooned and then marooned on an isle of cannibals. We move on! If you are ready...welcome aboard the Carpe Bootium!
