Synopsis:
The Science and Psychology of Beautiful Sounds, from Beethoven to the Beatles and Beyond

In a clear, accessible, and engaging voice, Powell fascinates the reader with his delightful descriptions of the science and psychology lurking beneath the surface of music. With lively discussions of the secrets behind harmony, timbre, keys, chords, loudness, musical composition,
and more, HOW MUSIC WORKS will be treasured by music lovers everywhere.
