Music, Emotion, and Fish with Dr. David Bashwiner

We are back, with Part 2 of ‘Music, Emotion, and Fish’. If you haven’t had the chance to listen to Part 1, you can click back to Episode 15, Dr. David Bashwiner was just getting to his work on the Midshipman toadfish, and what it can teach us about musical desire in humans. In Part 1, Dr. Bashwiner described the ongoing debate in music theory as to whether music has some sort of evolutionary significance by impacting our ability to pass on our genes, and why focusing too much on this question is distracting. We then talked about what made him want to study the midshipman fish and ended on the drive behind his research – wanting to understand the response of the listener to sound and their appreciation of music.
