Speaking of Music

PBS ran a two-hour special last night, The Music Instinct: Science and Song, hosted by Bobby McFerrin and Daniel Levitin -- the latter of whom wrote the book, This is Your Brain on Music, which I reviewed here a while back.

If you like pop-science and music and you missed this one, check it out on the PBS site or watch for it to be repeated. It covers everything from voice, to instruments, to Snowball, the Dancing Cockatoo ...

Who dares to say after seeing this that animals dont have personality or appreciation for music?!


Thanks for posting this Steve.
