THIS IS WHAT IT SOUNDS LIKE What the Music You Love Says About You

by | Read by Susan Rogers

Contemporary Culture • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Susan Rogers narrates in an authentic, thoroughly charming voice that makes this fascinating audiobook a treat to hear. It's the type of amateur performance that speaks to listeners more with its vulnerability and enthusiasm than its polish, but it's beguiling nonetheless. This enlightening audiobook is an enticing mix of music neuroscience, the authors' knowledge of music genres, and Susan Rogers's insider experiences as a sound tech. (She was the audio engineer for Prince's PURPLE RAIN.) The two professors explain the seven dimensions of music that people can attend to and illuminate these features in various recordings they reference. Helped by the youthful innocence in Rogers's performance as much as the authors' conversational writing, this accessible audiobook will ignite new freedom in how we interact with music and art more generally.
