Whether its being played through our headphones or around us in the local coffee shop, music is an irrepressible part of our daily lives – and it is so much more than just the sounds that enter our ears.
In the latest Music on the Mind talk, recorded live from Melbourne Recital Centre, esteemed speakers share their fascinating perspectives. Dr Amanda Krause explores how music cannot be isolated from our everyday experiences and Solange Glasser explains how synaesthesia can lead people to see or taste music.
