the 9th minute when it come to drexler put his head to good use and waited until the 2nd half to come alive sanch of firing in a rocket after 7 minutes then ashraf kimi put them in the lead to stay for just a few minutes from time. added a 3rd in injury time to round out the 3 wives. you're watching t.v. news live from berlin coming up next a documentary called the brain beats a journey to the future of. the british. how does timeline taste. from correspondent susan hart and host maybe only to steer in the various flavors of the resulting crazy my food fusion and. tasty taipei starts
5:16 pm
september 1st on. the blue planet our world we tend to describe its beauty in terms of what we see and treat our site as our primary sense. but in recent years new research has pointed toward the importance of hearing of the sounds of our world and how we process them. hearing it seems is more important than we thought. some even believe it's the key to our futures. music these inbuilt within our d.n.a. within our genes. our society becomes faster and faster and faster we have to get information out of the environment there it quickly the auditory channel is quicker
5:17 pm
than the visual check. this big developments happening in technology at the moment and a lot of people soon that's all about the visual but if you don't get the sound right then your sense for motion completely disappears.
5:18 pm
so i walked to the right way going to how people react to every day sounds so i go on about the normal day arcano if there's lots of sounds i'm not really paying attention to little and i will be taking my is my brain will be taking unconsciously but my conscious brain isn't aware of it. some aspects of the channel are faster than other senses and that's because we might think of hearing as being something to do with speaking like i am now in communication but that shoots an early warning. and that's what it's 1st evolutionary purpose. to see your welcome to the sound will come it's a really noisy place isn't it you would believe under these railway she's the simplest amazing sounds which you about this wonderful call coffin it follow me.
5:19 pm
the most just as a listener around here just. one can hear. you know. comes on maternal line boldness my.
5:20 pm
point you can see we hear. it as a slight back of the sofa for news on the 1950 s. rock n roll and part of musician hip thank you todd is going to great sound effect but he just calls by the you know the brick is just keeping the sound here not to sound is probably skipping around in song of this bouncing off the bottom coming back and it's also going along the top of the walls and coming back again so it's amazing amazing contribution by signs the mystery is how is the sound getting across it. skimming around the top of the great was it just going straight and bouncing off the wall and coming straight back to you. could even be both. i think sun can be both about listening and about vibration so from a purely so physical point if you can think of acoustic ways which are vibrations that don't need someone to listen to to actually exist but actually to be of interest really you could have some of the animal whether it's
5:21 pm
a human or whatever listening to the. early ninety's i moved from a music listener to. explore experimenting working on this topic you realized it is not really a 100 percent but the feeling what is reality existing outside us.
5:22 pm
our brain it's only delivering the information to be needed in order to survive but you can very much money believe your brain by giving it attention to a constant listening to the right. it's up to you how much of that. sound itself can. physically. change our behavior in a radical way this can create moods that creates a physical reaction in the body this freedom noise loss just this is a disability of language which can communicate so much we never speech of actually hearing because every feet what is moving everything what is a living has a frequency that's a risk even if the before we are born we have to experience of self.
5:23 pm
one of the interesting things that i picked up on was how different the arches were i mean between them all because they all seem very similar in makeup and shape and size it depends whether focusing point as compared to the ground is above the ground and it's not really a cliff but the head you don't hit face right on the ground you get this reinforcement sign goes down an up and down and up and there's all kind of weird accused effects which you know we've all been listened to for millennia i mean this is this ghost theories to. is placed in places where the echoes are particularly interesting so you can paint a picture of
5:24 pm
a figure and he's done but by go out in the sun will come off and it will look like the person's to a sound of a person's. it's rather strange as an archeologist to have an interest in music because the past is of course totally son into us. we know that some of the most elaborate painting panels in the caves or some of the case where he got the most. to mask acoustics. so he sped those paintings were associated with singing dancing musicality. this is a typical train or tram noise and i wonder what your sponsors to. i
5:25 pm
won't be long enough i think i'm so yeah it's really been pleasant near how how calm and the theory has it is that there scraping sounds on pleasant because they sound a bit like a scream and in our brains we have a very short will sponsor mechanism to deal with danger that's what hearing was 1st of evolution it was an early warning system so you'll find a lot of cities doing things like bringing fountains into squares because it gives you the sound of nature and you can do things the high traffic noise with it and of course we like the sound of nature is good for us you know in evolution returns we're used to living not in a city but out in the countryside and when there's water there's there's going to be food this going to be water for us to drink so we naturally find a pleasant sound. and was quite curious about sound is actually sound waves a really weak from a physical point a few tiny little motions of ammo kills but to us you know we have these big big
5:26 pm
emotional feelings was bonding to this week little force. thank. the the. mood.
5:27 pm
of the the. when early ancestors going back to maybe 3000000 years communicated with musicality they did that to express emotions to manipulate emotions to bill socialization ships because that was before language so we asked what was all this ability to be receptive to sounds what was all being used to have music my thing was being used for making music rather than making conversation is limited.
5:28 pm
humans are social creatures it was our hearing that enabled us to build communities and to secure the survival of our species through evolution. the importance of our audio functions can be discerned from the moment we are born. babies are like superman when babies are born they are musical so they can discriminate between the rhythm of their native language and rhythms of other languages but more interestingly and at age of 4 days after birth babies are already crying in the stress pattern of their mother tongue it's the genes had an influence on brain structure that made us at one point musical and also able to process language
5:29 pm
. i started playing piano when i was 3 i rejoiced and the only sound that i would hear in the room.
5:30 pm
and just learning by ear. were grown close apocalyptic house to see you. children are perfect musicians and where they have to superior appearing and superior pitch and then somewhere along the way if those skills are perfected if they're not worked on then you lose it but and it's infancy i feel like we're designed to be these perfectly pitched musical instrument. there's a huge space for innovation within the integration of music and technology that is going to come entirely from the younger generations. i'm really interested in
5:31 pm
helping young girls young women get into. said in the technological aspects of music making. computers is actually de monetizing the music industry you could actually create an entirely new form of music and genre and way of listening and writing music and the traditional approach to learning music is not necessary for that
5:32 pm
process and i'm excited to see where it's going to go because it's limitless. we're using different methods to see where and when the brain processes music so there are those methods like functional magnetic resonance imaging where we put people into the scanner and see which brain areas consume more oxygen means they are active during listening to music playing music also we use methods like trance of philosophy where we have little sensors electrodes on the scalp to record the brain potentials with a millisecond resolution to really tell when things are happening and we have methods where we stimulate the brain to make one brain area more or less
5:33 pm
efficient to see which effects this has on music perception and production. i started to play piano at the age of 3 and my family couldn't imagine that i could be a professional in pianists a professional musician. nobody of my family are musician and i realized that the music of this great means for me to have a conversation with the people and to get into the social life will show that to things in a wall with musicians who use both hands while playing this is done by the 2 hemispheres that need to communicate more strongly than in
5:34 pm
a non-musician the auditory areas are refined musicians are better able to discriminate between 2 pitches. we're fascinated by how musicians perform on stage with great speed and accuracy and how they are doing this. pianist when planning piano movements is always like 5 or 6 tones ahead in his or her mind because. we were interested in whether we can influence this planning process maybe boost this planning process by brain stimulation.
5:35 pm
and i sat here. the 2nd seat so today will do an experiment on music production. and why they are doing this week i asked him of the 81 area in your brain asked located about here and to find this area i'll do some neuro navigation with you. what will happen us there so you are see hands of a pianist on the screen playing the piano playing what sequences and your task will be to do exactly the same on the piano on your own piano just be me taking as you see on the screen all right. ringback
5:36 pm
ringback and what we hope to find is that the stimulation indeed boosts performance boosts the planning process ace. so one could take this as a docking for the pianist but personally i admit i would prefer natural pianists because they are already performing excellently on stage. i feel like we're very very close with this whole reverse engineering brain research and if you can create this blueprint of all the neural connections in your brain and build the
5:37 pm
supercomputer that way and map all these functions out you can send very noninvasive a lot. circle stimulus to your brain and be able to manipulate the emotional state the mental state so essentially that's going to change the way that we listen to music because we won't necessarily need speakers to you hear and experience music. one of the power of music for example is that it can have an influence on you and you don't know why. but the history of music has not only f.p.s. or. 15 wall songs to manipulate and music has been used for torture and that's a terrible history. in england it's been an interesting development where marks and
5:38 pm
spencers a big problem stories decided to turn off music entirely and there was silence which is an interesting choice because most shops are using music to manipulate behavior and so on this will actually harm the us. how is it that some external combination of musical sounds has like an emotional impact on human beings perhaps there are certain frequencies that are more harmonious with the way that our physical chemistry is taking my music and switching it from 440 hertz to 432 and like listening to the differences so on my record i definitely did that to certain tracks and some of the sounded and it just felt more warm and like more brazen.
5:39 pm
it's the. 2 experienced with the mafia a group of people who had never before listened to western type of music
5:40 pm
they hear a musical piece and the music really realize this is sad something that seems to be partly universal in this rituals experience a creative musical euphoria so we came up with this technology where we create music in a way that is physically very challenging we think fitness. you already have a number off effects just pass if you just to music but when you actively do it. the effects are approximately. double the strong.
5:41 pm
in crease down and side. which in chronic pain is huge furthermore we found some you know logical effects when we find them on our side concentration so the 1st barrier against infections and is increased off the region. we are basically rediscovering all these effects enough probably played a huge role in the development of human civilization. when we make music together we are truly in harmony each player becomes part of a bigger whole. we feel good when we enjoy music and whether it's being played by an orchestra a rock band a samba class an ancient ritual or even a fitness machine and the music we make also leads us back to ourselves to our
5:42 pm
bodies. studies indicate we have a sense of music even before we begin to use words. one could almost say the human brain is wired for music. music was a 1st project language probably but also in our development thurston's were 1st are sensitive to music and were 1st that doing music or musical sounds before understanding or is speaking like morse took to the thames.
5:43 pm
so brenchley for me is a project in which we are translating by. activity in the brain into sounds we create music where motions so the emotions of the brain translate it into musical language part of this project is to provide people with different disabilities like cerebral palsy the opportunity to create music through the activity of their brain. say i just want to hear we can see the signal from a friend's brain in real time. this information gets analyzed which indicates if
5:44 pm
the emotion is positive or negative strong or neutral we can basically watch as it changes yes for there was no or the most. can be of no use to yes or no and then you'll send this to me and we'll make music with the software. how do you decide what music to play at each moment you know. some how we experience sounds is cultural. but there is also internet component down there. you know when we play notes they create a harmony. and it gives us a sense of pleasure in this but if we play notes that have nothing to do with each other then it feels like this. since i've been the bus that made up the code you generate depends on the activity since i feel good that the question is. we have now started to. starting to use sounds in different aspects in music in music at a technology that's a bad there is
5:45 pm
a lot of potential there and we're not using it. in the field of music neuroscience is a relatively new research area. and yet we already have technology which can have a positive impact on people's lives now and new tools are constantly being developed. for music when i was 9 years old that shows the drums because i can not just be a drama. i start church of the song and i feel so in this celebration. and the.
5:46 pm
and the. thing. thing. yes i mean expresses why i feel it ensures what i know i show it shows me off and especially my hearing loss. with the instrument itself you get a feel for the whole body through it the vibrations different vibrations through the whole body. of them has
5:47 pm
a moderate hearing loss so it's very it's the varying levels of sound that he hears he does lip read a lot his personality started off quite shy but then he got into the drone and his confidence started to build up because he's joined music and the death and goes to yorkshire musical he's also now helping all the children in the cloth because he feels that he's got more to offer. i think with music being able to communicate through music is a good way to challenge your energies through in order to. to to release the frustrations that you might have been at not being able to hear properly but the idea of music is to incorporate everybody you can be deaf you can be hearing you can be blind unequal you can still have the opportunity to play music and create something together as a whole. adam has become a different person since he's been playing and. to see him run free music it's
5:48 pm
quite exciting as a parent to say. it gives him a good start in life to be able to express himself other i'm going to bring back. with all this to do tomorrow night profit. on. the club music list tomorrow night.
5:49 pm
the children at the club have varying degrees of hearing loss. they will be using the new technological device for the 1st time ever to see how it effects how they experience music. each vibrating backpack will be connected to every instrument in the room meaning it should allow its wearer to also feel the other instruments more intensely when everyone plays together. is a typo or your device that allows people to engage physically with music anything within the frequency range of 130 in the high end by putting the lover who will be able to feel. in effect bring you closer to music. a lot of people are going to benefit from using it you know not just from
5:50 pm
a creation standpoint but also performance and putting across your music in the best possible way so people are feeling everything. they have it. and it caused. it. oh it's going to be it's going to be like. this. this is so you know.
5:51 pm
you can feel the big feel the. feel different vibration coming on the static so the best to do it and get people back out here kid cacho big bear movie j.b. vibration on the enigma shops it was like oh my chick on your back is hard to describe. i felt i could really hear myself.
5:52 pm
in the natural world every sound has an echo even if these are sometimes hardly perceptible. the echo is not without purpose and comforts us so what happens when it's removed the anechoic chamber is well known for being a place it's kind of the solid every bit as sound you might just disappears into the wall. the absence of echo in the anechoic chamber can feel unsettling 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2.
5:53 pm
and indeed if there were no sound or no echo our early warning system would not function but then you also have the immense silence if you shut up in that space you'll start hearing sounds of your own body your brain is continually tweaking the id to make it for better. could we survive on another planet. in space sound an echo function in a different way. is the anechoic chamber space it depends what your condition is in space gosh if you're on a spacecraft it's quite noisy. so it's not a crowded place but i guess i suppose if you went outside the spacecraft in the moment rick 6 years before you died i guess you would hear sol it's a bit like an echo chamber but i suspect the panic space surrounding you might mean that's not the last thing you'll be thinking about. every sound in some places in
5:54 pm
space if you go to venus or mars is now saying that the sound waves can travel now the properties are very different on those planets because they're not oxygen rich . in the medium to travel. in the absence of a medium there is no sound however it's all relative to what you define as space and what's within the space there's an entire spectrum of wave forms so you can use sonification techniques to represent audio in using any of these any of the state or any of these waveform i received these really wonderful sonification samples from these researchers at cern the.
5:55 pm
that was the sound of 2 black holes collating. this page on collider in geneva switzerland they have this huge accelerators so they basically put the protons inside crushed them together so now i can play it over the scale of. the alchemy project was commissioned by a popular science face occleve they contacted me and really kate we want you to make a sound song out of all of the really cool sounds that were collected by these researchers. last.
5:56 pm
week. or so done. nothing. good a. little. music and the brain. it seems we may soon see many new technological devices that can enhance the quality of our lives through sound perception and that this could benefit not only individuals but also societies. the future of hearing is still on britain. but we are ready for it thanks to our ability and propensity for sound and music. to
5:57 pm
be still in the very beginning to understand what solves nothing we have no idea oh so yes what you can do the song. becoming a little bit more self-aware about us as a musical species has got to be opposed to fit in how we try to shape i'm an individual lives. i definitely feel like music will be in the future more into our bodies through the way that we listen to it so what happens when you can. well your emotional state by the cook of amounts was probably a lot of good and also a lot of bread. and once we are able to really translate.
