    World Science Festival

    Here's a short clip from last year's Notes & Neurons. In Search of the Common Chorus. lecture within WSF, where it was discussed how our response to music is determined.

    Bobby McFerrin conducted an experiment with the audience, using the pentatonic scale. The audience's response is quite interesting so I thought I'd share.

    Go here to see the whole video. Browse the site to find what the rest of the videos and experiments.
    Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent.

    *Protagoras: "Truth is subjective. What is true for you, and what is true for me, is true for me. Your opinion is true by virtue of its being your opinion."

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."
