Moved by Music

Throughout history, humans have found a way to create and share music, from prehistoric flutes made from bird bone and mammoth ivory to 21st century computer generated electronica. Through all of life’s unknowns, music has proved that it has always been and will likely always remain a constant to cultural exploration and growth. This track will explore the aspects of music that have affected us all, regardless of geographic location, political affiliation, or ethnic identity. Why does music make us cry? How can music bring us together and simultaneously tear us apart? Is there a formula to creating a smash-hit single? We will bring together musicians, neuroscientists, writers, and producers to dig deep into the creative and emotional features of the artform that Plato claims “gives a soul to the universe.”
