3. This Is Your Brain on Music: The Science of a Human Obsession
Author: by Daniel J. Levitin
In this groundbreaking union of art and science, rocker-turned-neuroscientist Daniel J. Levitin explores the connection between musicits performance, its composition, how we listen to it, why we enjoy itand the human brain. Taking on prominent thinkers who argue that music is nothing more than an evolutionary accident, Levitin poses that music is fundamental to our species, perhaps even more so than language.
Drawing on the latest research and on musical examples ranging from Mozart to Duke Ellington to Van Halen, he reveals: How composers produce some of the most pleasurable effects of listening to music by exploiting the way our brains make sense of the world Why we are so emotionally attached to the music we listened to as teenagers, whether it was Fleetwood Mac, U2, or Dr. Dre That practice, rather than talent, is the driving force behind musical expertise How those insidious little jingles (called earworms) get stuck in our headA Los Angeles Times Book Award finalist, This Is Your Brain on Music will attract readers of Oliver Sacks and David Byrne, as it is an unprecedented, eye-opening investigation into an obsession at the heart of human nature.

Author: by Rod Gervais

16. The Ancient Language of Sacred Sound: The Acoustic Science of the Divine
Author: by David Elkington
Reveals the connections between the Earth’s resonant frequencies, sacred sites, human consciousness, and the origins of religion Details how sacred sites resonate at the same frequencies as both the Earth and the alpha waves of the human brain Shows how human writing in its original hieroglyphic form was a direct response to the divine sound patterns of sacred sites Explains how ancient hero myths from around the world relate to divine acoustic science and formed the source of religion The Earth resonates at an extremely low frequency.
Known as the Schumann Resonance, this natural rhythm of the Earth precisely corresponds with the human brain’s alpha wave frequencies-the frequency at which we enter into and come out of sleep as well as the frequency of deep meditation, inspiration, and problem solving.
Sound experiments reveal that sacred sites and structures like stupas, pyramids, and cathedrals also resonate at these special frequencies when activated by chanting and singing. Did our ancestors build their sacred sites according to the rhythms of the Earth? Exploring the acoustic connections between the Earth, the human brain, and sacred spaces, David Elkington shows how humanity maintained a direct line of communication with Mother Earth and the Divine through the construction of sacred sites, such as Stonehenge, Newgrange, Machu Picchu, Chartres Cathedral, and the pyramids of both Egypt and Mexico.
