BIORHYTHM: Music and the Body

Thursday, June 2, 2011
12:00 pm - 6:00 pm

World Science Festival presents the US debut of the exhibition BIORHYTHM: Music and the Body from Science Gallery Dublin.

Why does a minor chord sound sad? Is there a formula for the perfect hit? Whistling, dancing, finger-snapping, and toe-tapping—what makes us do it? Find out when music and science join forces in an interactive bazaar of beats, sounds, and rhythm in this new exhibition called BIORHYTHM. Learn what drives sound manipulation and discover how different types of music evoke different emotions. Trace the power of an impactful pop hook in a song, measuring the way our brains and bodies react, down to the responses in our fingertips.
