Orchestra Of The Age Of Enlightenment - Discovering Brain Dynamics of Music

With Professor Morten L. Kringelbach, Associate Professor and Senior Research Fellow, Department of Psychiatry, University of Oxford speaker.

The Music:
This cantata has a dark-hued flavour due to its unusual instrumentation which includes four violas. It opens with a musical depiction of rain and falling snow, and the lurking devil is evoked in the dramatic prayer ‘My soul’s treasure is God’s word’.

The Science:
How does music communicate meaning, and how does the brain process its patterns? The neuroscience of music is beginning to elucidate how music contributes to the experience of Eudaimonia, a life well-lived.

The OAE plays on period instruments aiming to recreate the sounds and styles of performance that would have been familiar to composers in their own time.
