Book Description:

Why do people attach importance to the wordless language we call music? Musical Cognition suggests that in music, our cognitive functions are challenged; yet, as listeners, we often do not realise that the listener plays an active role in reaching the awareness that makes music so exhilarating, soothing, and inspiring. In reality, the author contends, listening does not happen in the outer world of audible sound, but in the inner world of our minds and brains.
