Tuckamore Talks 2

7:00pm, MUN Botanical Garden
Dr. Sarah Sauvé delves into the perceptual reasons behind two of the most prominent techniques composers use to create the auditory illusion that we call "music": voice-leading and orchestration. Join us as we explore some of the empirical evidence that has identified the limits of what we humans can hear and what we find pleasant - all accompanied by lots of musical examples, of course! Free admission, presented with support from Cox & Palmer.
