Seabrook Library likes The World in Six Songs

The Seabrook Library has a small review of Daniel J. Levitin’s book The World In Six Songs: How the Musical Brain Creates Human Nature.

Blending cutting-edge scientific findings with his own sometimes hilarious experiences as a musician and music-industry professional, Levitin’s sweeping study also incorporates wisdom gleaned from interviews with icons ranging from Sting and Paul Simon to Joni Mitchell, and David Byrne, along with classical musicians and conductors, historians, anthropologists, and evolutionary biologists. The result is a brilliant revelation of the prehistoric yet elegant systems at play when we sing and dance at a wedding or cheer at a concert—or tune out quietly with an iPod.

(I’m sure I went to the Seabrook Library at least once while growing up in northeastern Massachusetts. Crazy, this internet world be.)
