Lately I've been immersing myself in the percussion music of Spanish composer and performer Nacho Arimany. He's featured in the new brain training tool I am almost (but not quite) ready to offer my clients called InTime. From Advanced Brain Technologies, with whom Nacho collaborated to create this tool:
The brain is musical; neuroscience has proven through functional brain imaging that music engages more brain areas than anything else, and rhythm is the most important, fundamental aspect of music.
For me, this combines two key passions -- brain science and music. Learning about this has been a personal pleasure. Intuitively I believe that percussion is basic to life, a drum beat is a like heart beat. Introducing new rhythms can be healing.
If you are looking for a special treat this weekend, join me in listening to Nacho in concert. Hope you enjoy it!
