Exploratory Seminar on the connections between music and the heart
Elaine Chew, PI of ERC Project COSMOS at the CNRS – UMR9912/STMS (IRCAM) and Pier Lambiase, Professor of Cardiology at University College London / Barts Heart Centre are organisers of a seminar at Harvard's Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study exploring the connections between music and the heart.
The seminar themes include
- heart-brain, music-brain, and music-heart-brain interactions, and
- commonalities in rhythm representation in music and heart signals.
The seminar brings together a unique combination of musicians/composers/artists, psychologists/neuroscientists, computer scientists, and medics/physiologist/cardiologist for arts-science, academic-clinical cross-disciplinary exchange to improve the understanding of disciplines surrounding music and the heart.
