That Sounds Familiar

June 25 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Dynamics Series - SummerFest 2019

Piano Puzzlers and Other Musical Mysteries

Speaker: Bruce Adolphe, host; Anne Cleary, Professor of Cognitive Psychology, CSU; Assal Habibi, Assistant Professor (Research) of Psychology, University of Southern California. Brain and Creativity Institute. Carol Seger, Professor of Cognitive Psychology, CSU.

Artist: Bruce Adolphe, piano.

Program: Is that a Chopin waltz or tune by Cole Porter?  If it’s both, it is probably a Piano Puzzler by Bruce Adolphe. Now on public radio’s Performance Today weekly for 17 years (and one of the first podcasts available), Piano Puzzlers present perceptual problems and confusing keyboard conundrums (no drums needed). In this program, three scientists join Bruce in examining musical confusion and clarity, followed by a one-hour concert of nothing but piano puzzlers!

Watch Bruce Adolphe reveal all of the secrets of  Piano Puzzlers on Performance Today. And listen to Assal Habibi explain how music affects the brain.
