An interview with Indre Viskontas

Why do we love music? Why do we turn to music to comfort us after a breakup? Why does music have the power to unite a group of people? Today on Radiozine Suzanne LaGrande interviews opera singer and neuroscientist Indre Viskontas who has just published How Music Can Make Us Better. She discusses the connection between neuroscience and music, why people prefer some kinds of music and hate other kinds, how music is used in healing and can make society as a whole better.
