Art and Physics: Parallel Visions in Space Time & Light Leonard Shlain proposes that the visionary artist is the first member of a culture to see the world in a new way. Then, nearly simultaneously, a revolutionary physicist discovers a new way to think about the world. Escorting the reader through the classical, medieval, Renaissance and modern eras, Shlain shows how the artists' images when superimposed on the physicists' concepts create a compelling fit. Leonard Shlain http://www.artandphysics.com/chapter_1_page1.html 
Musical Language (Podcast) What is music? How does it work? Why does it move us? Why are some people better at it than others?

We also re-imagine the disastrous 1913 debut of Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring…through the lens of modern neurology. NPR's "Radio Lab"  http://www.wnyc.org/shows/radiolab/episodes/2006/04/21
