BBC Radio 3 Free Thinking Festival 2017: Music Matters: Music in the Time of Our Lives

Sage Gateshead Concourse

Tom Service explores our experience and perception of music and time in the routines and activities of daily life.

Experts from the University of Newcastle’s Institute of Neuroscience join Tom Service in the Music Matters Lab.

Presenter of Radio 3’s Music Matters since 2003, Tom Service studied music at the University of York. He writes for newspapers and magazines including The Guardian and launched Radio 3’s programme The Listening Service last year.

With features, live discussion and real-time experiments in the Music Matters Lab, this edition of the programme explores the influence of social media on our musical listening. And: how do we use music to slow us down?

Experts from the University of Newcastle’s Institute of Neuroscience join Tom Service in the Music Matters Lab.
