The brain does marvelous things with the variety of sensory “inputs”entering it –  light, sound, touch. This program pairs a sage of musicaland film “minimalism” who specializes in pieces with very extended pitches,Phill Niblock, with the help of David Watson, bagpipes, and with a young masterof the way acoustic signals are processed in the brain, Nima Mesgarani fromColumbia’s Electrical Engineering Department to lead you to think about soundin unusual ways. Phill’s music is an exploration of sound textures created invery dense, often atonal tunings. Listen, and you’ll hear things that youcannot imagine could have been heard. Nima designs experiments probing how ourbrain hears speech, and thinks about interfacing brain signals to machines. Helikes to invert things, so he will tell us what a ferret hears when you speakto it.  Sounds have textures, they overlay and interlace. And the braindoes things with them that you could not imagine!      http://corneliastreetcafe.com/
