I'm interested in learning what happens to people while they experience music & sound; what specific role sound & music has on human consciousness and what happens to musicians as they create music, like during an improvised jazz solo for example. I'm waiting on a few music psychology books that will hopefully lead me through my research this semester. Also a book suggested to me called "The Feeling of What Happens" by Antonio Damasio.


An interesting site with some visual-music info:

Here are some interesting theories I've stumbled upon...
Synesthesia:

Shepard Tone:

Damasio quotes T.S Eliot on consciousness saying that it is "music heard so deeply, that it is not heard at all."
