Brief discussion on the science of music, on Star Talk Radio

Neil deGrasse Tyson on Star Talk Radio had guest Josh Groban on this week.

You’ll learn how artists breathe life into their music, and about the qualitative difference between human generated and automated music. Explore the importance of the acoustics of a performance space, the effect music has on people, the difference between melody and harmony, the ranges the human voice is capable of, and which was more important, Charlie Parker’s personal style or his sax

They didn’t so much discuss these items as gloss over them lightly.
