Frank Russo asks “Is it possible to experience music without sound?”

You’ll have to turn up the volume to hear Frank Russo’s talk. The description on YouTube says “Frank Russo is a cognitive scientist, musician, and armchair engineer. With an educational background spanning music cognition and hearing science, he is deeply interested in supporting communication of emotion in the context of music and beyond. As Director of the SMART (Science of Music, Auditory Research and Technology) Lab at Ryerson University, Frank and his colleagues have developed a chair that uses vibrotactile stimulation to bring music to deaf individuals. Research shows that deaf individuals have a physiological response to music that bears similarity to that of hearing individuals despite not having access to auditory stimulation.”

This talk is from TedxIBYork which took place on November 11th, 2010.
