This edition of Dangerous Vision dives deep into the science of music. Randy’s guest is Byron Walker from Standford’s CCRMA Listening Room. What changes in a musician’s brain after hours and years of daily practice? How do skills that make a great violinist transfer to other abilities? Can directed neuroplasticity be used to target skill learning? Byron’s knowledge of gaming as a science as directed his passion for creating videogames that are strictly audio. Byron calls them audio games though, given there’s technically no visual component!
