Music is the second Salon in our Memory, Music & Magic Berwins Salon North Series
Dr John Powell will explain the science behind the music we love. As an academic and a composer, he has explored the science behind the beautiful sounds from Beethoven to the Beatles. He’ll be on hand to answer why some music sounds better on vinyl, why ten violins sound only twice as loud as one, and to explain the maths involved in music composition, helping us understand exactly how music works.
Greg Wilson is a superstar DJ. Beginning with a mobile disco in Liverpool at 15, now producing and touring the world bringing dance floors to life with his own brand of musical magic, he is a hugely influential figure on the music scene. Greg will be at Berwins Salon North to explain the biggest tracks of the last 50 years, putting them in musical context and explaining the stories behind the music that has defined our times.
Dr Catherine Loveday is a renowned neuroscientist who specialises in musical memory. Catherine’s work has concentrated around the idea of autobiographical memory, particularly in explaining why the music you love is intrinsically bound up with your memories and your sense of identity. Find out how memories are created, why the music of your teens is particularly important and why your musical memories are the most robust when it comes to ageing.
