Contents
  • 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
  • Prelude : the harmonious universe : an introduction
  • Overture : why we sing : what is music and where does it comes from?
  • Staccato : the atoms of music : what are musical notes 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?
