| Montag ist #Musikbuchmontag. | 
Heute empfiehlt Irina Deuble, die musikalische Leiterin der Musical-Produktion @_heathers.stageink_ , die im März bei uns Premiere haben wird, ein faszinierendes #Sachbuch: „This is your Brain on Music“ ist ein Buch für alle, die sich für (hirn-)physiologische Reaktionen auf #Musik interessieren und schon immer wissen wollten, warum unsere Füße im Takt mitwippen oder warum unsere Lieblingsmusik eigentlich unsere Lieblingsmusik ist. #DanielLevitin beschreibt Parameter wie Timbre, Rhythmus und Harmonie und setzt diese in Verbindung mit neurologischer Anatomie, Neurochemie, kognitiver Psychologie und Evolution. Trotz kompliziert klingender Themen schafft es der Autor das Buch spannend und gut lesbar zu machen, auch für Nicht-Fachpublikum.

It’s time to take a step back from saving the world or catching a killer: give me Science, give me Wine, and give me an Old Piano. I’ll need all three to perfect this pairing. 🍷📚🎹

The tagline for this book is ‘Understanding a Human Obsession’ which perfectly describes the way I feel and many others feel about music. 
This Is Your Brain on Music by Daniel Levitin was an intense but amazing insight into the world of music. 
I think anyone who enjoys and listens to music may be confident that they know a lot about music but after starting this book I realised that the world of music is huge and there is so much more to learn. 
And this book is the meeting of two huge disciplines; Neuroscience and Music. 
It is a great way to be introduced to music theory and then understand the relationship between the sound waves produced by instruments or an ipod and the brain. 
The cover contains a quote saying it will change the way you listen to music, and I completely agree with this. I found myself dissecting the songs I was listening to, trying to detect their timbre, the instruments used in the song, the count of the beat and pitch etc. 
A truly fascinating book recommended to all music or psychology lovers!

Page one and this book has already got me.
“I love science, and it pains me to think that so many are terrified of the subject or feel that choosing science means you cannot also choose compassion, or the arts, or be awed by nature. Science is not meant to cure us of mystery, but to reinvent and reinvigorate it.” This is Your Brain on Music: Understanding a Human Obsession.

THIS IS YOUR BRAIN ON MUSIC by DANIEL J. LEVIN is hands down one of the best books about how the human mind interprets Music and the pleasure it gives us. I have probably read this book 3 times in my life and will gladly read it again! Even if you are not a Musician, this Book is extremely Fascinating! #ThisIsYourBrainOnMusic @danieljlevine #Genius #MusicMind #Musica #PerrelliProductions #MorethanMusic #music #tattoo #livro #perrelli #leiaumlivro #leitura
"This Is Your Brain on Music. The Science of a Human Obsession" by Daniel J. Levitin (2006)
❇
This book is definitely not an easy reading, there's a lot of scientific data and research, but the author has a remarkable talent to make it captivating even for readers who are neither musicians nor neuroscientists (he is both!)... and reading it I can feel how deep his relationship with music is 🎼🎶🎵

Thunderstorms, candles, and Bach. 🖤 And a sleeping baby. 🖤 (Soon to be a sleeping mommy.) Did you know that only about half of the population has ever, or rather, is capable of experiencing goosebumps or chills from hearing music? I read that today, and it blew my mind. I thought that was something that happened to everyone. Apparently it isn't, so if you've ever heard a moving piece and it gave you the chills, count yourself as special. While the specific reasons are still unclear, it does suggest that our brains are wired differently, and lean toward a more emotional approach to life. Makes sense to me. Haha. .

I never told you all how much I love music... do any of you have another passion besides reading?

Studies have shown that playing and listening to music helps work several parts of your brain. MusicMakers Workshop wants to give the necessary tools to help musicians have a successful career while using these amazing parts of their brains!

#gratitude The engineer is too often the unsung hero of music. Like, those tracks would NOT sound the way they do without a quality engineer holding you down. S/O to @carvomusic @pacdiggity for always coming correct and having my tracks’ back. As of this post, Carvo’s moved to ATL, Paco’s been on tour and I’ve had to find a new recording home this summer. Proud to have aligned with my bro @captive_ at @cookitupstudios. Professional quality and service with the right vibe to elicit that authentic performance in the booth.

Livro "A Música no Seu Cérebro" | Daniel J. Levitin.

Depois de uma constante procura, finalmente consegui adquirir este livro por um preço justo. 
O livro abrange o modo como os seres humanos vivenciam a música e os motivos que a fazem desempenhar um papel tão importante em nossa vida.
Por que certas canções nos comovem e outras nos deixam tão indiferentes? Qual o papel da percepção, a misteriosa capacidade dos grandes músicos e engenheiros de som de ouvir nuances que escapam à maioria das pessoas?

Wise words from Garth to start the day. If we spend our life avoiding pain, we also miss out on true pleasure and connection. Surrendering to whatever life brings, dancing with the changing tide, IS life. We all only get this one, in this time, in this body. Listen to the beautiful music inside, freely give and receive love and if you fall, just make it part of the dance. 🎶 ❤️ 💃

This is a great and very informative video on the psychological effects of music - both for listeners and musicians. Definitely worth checking out the full video.

When I purchased this book in 2009, I was at a point in my life where I was deeply conflicted between my desire to be an artist or a scientist. In reading this book, I realized that art and science overlap in many amazing ways. Art requires scientists. Science requires artists. This was the start of my pursuit of music technology and film. #thisisyourbrainonmusic #thisisyourbrain #thisisyourlife #mylibrary #nonfiction #music #science #daniellevitin #neuroscience #readwithme
I’m sitting on alone on a bench in the backyard of my childhoodfriend @stinemonsen reading the first chapter of This is Your Brain on Music by Daniel J Levitin.⠀
The thunder strikes, and small drops of rain makes me put the borrowed book away. And then, to my left, I see this guy firing himself down a thin, close to invisible string. He looks so cool, like a spy on a mission, which in a few moments became this: how to cross a huge crack on the ground? 😅⠀
Don’t let anything stop you from exploring the world through you individual consciousness and perception! 🐛⠀

This is a fascinating book. This Is Your Brain on Music: The Science of Human Obsession by Daniel J. Levitin (2006) explores the ways in which memory and music are intertwined, the evolutionary role of music, the nature of ear-worms (“from the German Ohrwurm, or simply the stuck-song syndrome”) and a whole lot more. And while it is scientific and requires a reasonable reading level, it is neither stodgy nor dry. Also, I learned the word “spandrel,” which I love.

Have you ever wondered why you might struggle to get moving, keep moving or stop moving when under high stress? You know those times when you can’t quite get out of bed 🙋‍♀️, you’re stuck sitting in one place 🙋‍♀️, the times you spend running around in circles 🙋‍♀️, or find it hard just to stop working 🙋‍♀️?
.
That is the cerebellum doing its thing. .
.
The cerebellum (which is part of the survival lizard brain) is important for coordinating movement - and it turns out that the cerebellum is impacted by stress and trauma. Your brain has learned that you are under threat and is prioritising survival (but more often than not it’s not as life and death as our brain thinks it is!!). .
.
Research suggests that rhythm can help coordination of movement for those with cerebellar differences from Parkinson’s Disease by targeting the cerebellum. Researchers and music therapists are starting to consider how this translates to supporting those who have ASD, sensory processing challenges, movement disorders as well as responses to trauma and stress. .
.
When our body is more regulated we’re able to access our emotional and thinking brains more easily!! Does this relate to your thinking and experiences? 🎨 @andrewmoooore .

This brain comes in so handy when working with details oriented people and knowledge thirsty children and teens - when it comes to talking about what might be happening for them, why we might choose particular music or creative interventions and how we can support their brains to thrive. .
.
And for those who missed it - I’m going live on Facebook on Saturday morning to chat about what we know (so far) about brain development. I’ll be starting off with the brain stem and cerebellum - so if you’re details oriented, curious or knowledge thirsty come and join me!!

"It's that active engagement that seems to be critical. People who intentionally interact with music, they're using an outlet to express their emotions." - Melissa Weinberg, Deakin University

Music has a powerful associative ability within our brains - I’ve been listening to the same song on repeat for a lot of my work for the past 6 years or so, ever since college.
#
This song immediately brings me back to my college days, when I first started using it to study with. It helps me block out the rest of the world, and immediately puts me in the thinking mindset.
#
I’ve got a lot of music like this - songs that have very particular memories associated with them for me. I have songs and albums associated with books I read, video games I played, and more.
#
One of my favorite things to do is pick a new song or album for a new activity and put it on repeat. It quickly becomes associated with the activity, and now I have that powerful association that I can draw on whenever I want to remember the activity itself.

Your date nights don’t include pairings of classical music and fMRI scans? Weird.. #thisisyourbrainonmusic
A few years ago I was initiated in to a powerful and ancient medicine ... beach dancing😊🎶💃 It’s simple. You put your music playlist on shuffle and dance to three different songs wildly (or gently depending on the song!) It’s always the three that I need. ✨✨✨ I feel joyful and clear minded, ready for the day ahead 🧠🎶 🙏🏻 #music #dance  #dancetherapy #musictherapy#thisisyourbrainonmusic #thisisyourbrainondance ✨🕺🏻✨
Tag a friend that you love to dance with (for me it’s my Roomie @greenshaker !!) and share a favorite song you love to dance to in the comments below! I’ll make a playlist with all of them for our next move and nourish retreat! 💕✨

It's about time I uploaded a #currentlyreading 📖 I've just finished "This Is Your Brain on Music" by Daniel Levitin and I'm moving on to a book I've had on my reading list since Christmas: "The Course of Love" by Alain de Botton. I can't tell if it's a smart or stupid decision at this current juncture in my life, but I hope it'll give me some clarity and reignite beliefs as I move forward 💛 #thisisyourbrainonmusic #daniellevitin #thecourseoflove #alaindebotton #book #reading #love #novel

For any music lovers out there, this volume by anthropologist Daniel Levitin is a sweet read. The power that music has to tap right into the human soul, get us moving and serve as a passcode, clarifier and even shaper of our nebulous emotional cores never ceases to fascinate -- in particular, why certain collections of what are, at heart, overlays of audio frequencies manifest as the aural magic of a track by JS Bach, Scott Joplin, Stevie Nicks, Mozart, Elvis, Verdi, MerleHaggard, Rammstein, Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington, Madonna or Childish Gambino alike. Their creations are simultaneously universal and unique, tapping into a deep-rooted semiotics of the mind -- like an innate, builtin code that's tightly bound up with our emotions, aspirations, and the stories and archetypes that both soothe and move us. As close as anything we have to a universal language, yet with each song or symphony also standing out as a fresh innovation and addition to our collective consciousness. Put another way, there's something like an eons-old cosmic narrative somehow wrapped up in the endless folds of the human brain -- a hidden code of logic and emotion that drives much of what we take for granted as both our conscious and unconscious minds, of ancient and shadowy origin. And it's music that, literally, keys into this code. (continued below: see comments section)

I kinda hijacked this play session this morning. Not sure who had more fun 😜
.
Music is a whole brain and whole body activity. Listening to music influences the most primal survival parts of our brain (parts that control breathing, heart beat and blood pressure and movement), the emotional parts of our brain (think memory, emotional expression, social engagement) and the smart parts of our brain (think behaviour management, attention regulation, logical thought). .
Me attempting to play chopsticks on a giant keyboard while side stepping a toddler? Aside from it being a load of fun and play - it also gave my brain and body a work out. Music and therapy are a great team 🎹

Morning set... starts the day off right. #Music goes directly to the soul, bypassing all the defenses. I use it consistently to activate or soothe my clients @applemusic has made that SO EASY!

The augmented 4th chord is so dissonant that at one point, the church banned it and labeled it “the devil in the music” (or something like that)/diabolus in musica which is my favorite #slayer album even if some members of Slayer hate it. #thisisyourbrainonmusic #music #book

This is your brain on drugs. This is your brain on music. I borrowed a book from my course leader.

"There are two types of beings in the universe. Those who dance, and those who do not."
"I get it, yes. I'm a dancer, Gamora is not."
"You just need to find a woman who is pathetic, like you."
"Thanks, buddy."
Drax and Starlord stand by their favorite books for #riotgrams #music theme. Personally,  I'm with Drax on this one...

Hey y'all! Spent most of the day reading this fantastic book that I've had forever called "This Is Your Brain on Music". It talks a little bit about why we are sonically attracted to the music we love. It gets real scientific so I read in chunks and highlight. Science and I have never gotten along but I'm trying. 🌎
