“This is Your Brain on Music:  The Science of a Human Obsession”

Cover of the book  "This is your brain on music" by Daniel Levitin

by Daniel Levitin  ISBN 978-0452-28852-2

Daniel Levitin began his career as a recording engineer and musician.  He decided to go back to school for his doctorate in neurophysiology.  this book begins by explaining music theory, and then delves into experiment results that show how music registers in our brains.  This is pertinent to the martial artist because the physical practice of musicianship is similar to the practice of warriorship.  Work over time has its effect on the body and the mind.  The meditative results of playing a musical instrument, is very similar to the results we get from our martial practice.
