Music : A Story of Tonal Gravity, Melodic Objects, and Motion in Tonal Space
This book tells a story about magic of music from a dual perspective of cognitive science and musical practice. Music is able to communicate complex emotions and idea. We still do not understand how this communication is accomplished. In music we encounter a special kind of transfer of information, based on remarkably primitive principle: perceived tension.
