A Legendary Producer Turned Neuroscientist on Finding Yourself Through Music

This Is What It Sounds Like is a journey into the science and soul of music that reveals the secrets of why your favorite songs move you. Susan Rogers leads readers to musical self-awareness. She explains that we each possess a unique "listener profile" based on our brain's natural response to seven key dimensions of any song. Are you someone who prefers lyrics or melody? Do you like music "above the neck" (intellectually stimulating), or "below the neck" (instinctual and rhythmic)? Whether your taste is esoteric or mainstream, Rogers guides readers to recognize their musical personality, and offers language to describe one's own unique taste.      288 pages pb
