If you’ve never watched a TED Talks before you’re in for a treat. What is TED?
TED is a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader.
This talk in particular takes a fascinating approach to both music and emotion. Many things change through time but some very basics elements stay the same. Both music and emotions remain powerful forces in society today. Tuning in to both of these elements can give you an edge in communicating in work and life.
“Michael Tilson Thomas traces the development of classical music through the development of written notation, the record, and the re-mix.”
