Why-to listen to music:

Posted 14 June 2017 | By | Categories: Text, Why-to | No Comments

Cross-posted at Entropy Magazine, but edited and changed since its original publication. I’m hard pressed to think of a person who doesn’t like music.  It’s been around since the beginning and it comes in all forms in all cultures so there’s got to be a reason for it.  Maybe we should dissect the process of the […]
