Sound Waves and Brain Waves: Why Does Music Make us Move?

March 22, 2021
7:30 PM - 8:30 PM
Online

In this series, we explore the intersections between jazz music and science, from how we experience sound and rhythm, to musical memories and the creative process. Join multiple Grammy nominee and Guggenheim and MacArthur Fellow Miguel Zenón for an intimate online performance combined with a conversation with scientists from Columbia University’s Zuckerman Institute, where Zenón is currently jazz artist-in-residence.

In this month’s program, we explore themes such as how and why we move to a beat, why moving feels good, and why feeling good makes us want to move.

Watch it live on Zoom.


Sound Waves and Brain Waves is a collaboration between Northern Manhattan Arts Alliance and Columbia University’s Zuckerman Institute.
