Dinosaur Annex premieres Shadle and MIT student compositions

Cambridge Science Festival 2017

Why do we respond so strongly to music? Have you heard of the Wekinator? Join MIT neuroscientists, musicians and composers on a journey to explore what happens to our brains in the presence of music.

Boston’s premiere music ensemble Dinosaur Annex presents brand new works by MIT’s Charles Shadle, Italian composer/researcher Michele Zaccagnini, and MIT student composers. Hear MIT neuroscientist Joshua McDermott tell us about his recent trail-blazing work that discovered brain pathways that respond just to music.

Sunday, April 16, 2017 at 7:30pm, MIT Museum. Admission Free. Supported by the Council for the Arts at MIT.
