One Response to Psycomedia Episode 30 – Music Part I – I Want to Brain Scan Big Jeff

  1. Sam says:

    It’s anecdotal, but Radiolab’s episode on music had some interesting stories which seem to suggest that it would be difficult to map a relation between particular features of music and human reactions. The first was the literally riotous response to the première of Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring (compared to it’s later more positive reception). The second was about a guy at a radio station who decided to listen to all the music, and after spending a few months listening to nothing but Gregorian chant happened to hear some horribly discordant piece of music that turned out to be JS Bach.
