How to Compose Earworms and Fetal Music with Dr. Vicky Williamson

Music Psychologist Victoria Williamson is an expert on earworms – songs that stick in our heads. In this episode of Composer Quest, she reveals her findings on what makes a melody sticky. Vicky also answers my other pressing music psychology questions:

Why do babies have an innate sense of rhythm?
Why did Clive Wearing, a severe amnesiac, retain his ability to perform music?
When did humans start playing instruments?

Also in this episode, you’ll get to hear the sound of the world’s oldest instrument, and a never-before-released Charlie song. Enjoy!
