The Music Instinct
how music works and why we can't do without it
Overture: why we sing : what is music and how do we decide which to use?
Andante : what's in a tune? : do melodies follow rules, and if so, which?
Legato : keeping it together : How do we decode the sound?
Tutti: all together now : how do we use more than one note at a time?
Con moto: slave to the rhythm : what gives music its pulse?
Pizzicato : the colour of music : why do instruments sound different, and how does that affect the music?
Misterioso : all in the mind : which bits of the brain do we use for music?
Appassionato : light my fire : how does music convey and elicit emotion?
Capriccioso : going in and out of style : what are musical styles? : is music about notes, or patterns, or textures?
Parlando : why music talks to us : is music a language? or is it closer to the non-verbal arts?
Serioso : the meaning of music : what are composers and musicians trying to say? : can music in itself say anything at all?
Coda : the condition of music
