He believed that this correlation was part of a harmonic relationship that connects everything in the universe, which he called The Music of the Spheres. While he didn’t have the benefit of today’s brain imaging technology, he just may have been right. Human brains interpret waves that fall between 20 to 20,000 Hz as sound. The vibration, usually carried by the air, enters our ear, eventually stimulates the auditory nerve , which sends a signal to the brain.

Seeing the Brain Through the Eyes of an Artist: Elizabeth Jameson


There is mounting evidence that performance arts enhance brain development at any age. A recent study found that dancers and musicians share very similar brains – they have more connections between different regions of the brain than the average non-artist. Over time, tasking the brain to create music or art requires the use of a large percentage of the brain, so these areas develop thicker interconnections, which enhances brain processing power and creativity.

Because the brain is wired to be social, it seeks social cues — the real-time behaviors that display connection.
