Scanner Music, October 2010
I was asked by Bruce McCandliss, a Psychology professor at Vanderbilt University, to compose music for one of his experiments. He will be testing grade school children between the ages of 6-9 in an fMRI, and he wanted music that would help drown out the sound of the machine and keep the kids calm and focused.
