Music Is Sport: First Half

From Music 101, 4:10 pm on 24 August 2013

Joshua "Spanky" Moore explores the science, psychology and sociology of bands and musicians in an attempt to understand this peculiar species of human being. Act 1: The Competition - Musicians often claim that art isn't a competition, but just how competitive are they in reality? Act 2: The Ego - What role does ego play in a musician's life? Are they all narcissists in denial? Act 3: The Song: What is the science behind writing a good song? Could a robot ever write music that connects with human emotion?
