New York – Jun 22, 2007 – Daniel Levitin, published author; head of the McGill University Laboratory for Music Perception, Cognition and Expertise; musician; producer; and former stand-up comedian, will deliver the keynote address at the Audio Engineering Society 123rd Convention on Oct. 5 at the Jacob Javits Center in New York.
Levitin’s book, This Is Your Brain on Music, serves as a jumping off point, for his address. He will explore a number of recent findings in how music affects the brain, neurochemistry and mood. Levitin also takes up the previously inexplicable phenomenon that enables human beings to identify the title and artist of certain songs by a single fleeting chord.
