THE MUSICAL MIND

6.00–7.15pm, Monday 26 October

 


 

Music is thought to have played an important role in human evolution, but how far back does it go?What role did it play in the evolution of the mind? Does music today have anything in common with music in prehistory? And is the ability to hear music uniquely human or something we share with other animals? Ian Cross, Diana Omigie, and Barry Smith explore the phenomenon and evolution of music.
