The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

Ever wondered about what makes music expressive, what people with synaesthesia experience when they listen to music or how space makes a difference to the musical experience? Join the Music Mind Machine research centre for the online launch of three new podcasts to find out.

Click here to join the online launch event on 3 July at 9:30am.

At the launch, BBC Radio 3 and Music in the Round's Tom McKinney will introduce the new podcasts exploring musical experience. Tom will be joined by three researchers from the Department of Music to discuss music-colour synaesthesia, expressiveness in music and music's relationship to space. Listeners will then be invited to be among the first to listen the full podcasts.

The podcasts:

  • Music-colour synaesthesia with Caroline Curwen
  • Music and expressivity with Dr Henrique Meissner
  • Music and space with Jacob Downs
