Dan Kruse with introduction by Brian Moon
Dan's talk ponders the deep significance of music in our lives - cognitively, socially and emotionally. He will reflect both on his own personal lifelong journey in relationship to music and sound, and on the growing body of scholarly research that seeks to more fully understand the relationship we all have with what comes through our ears on its way to touching our minds, hearts and spirits. Where is the joy in music? The answers may surprise and delight you.
Dan Kruse is an ethnomusicologist, lecturer, workshop facilitator and award-winning producer of documentary works on musical subjects. He also serves as the local host of NPR's "All Things Considered" on Tucson's KUAZ-FM.
