This is the question that's posed by a recent documentary on ageing called Alive Inside, .

The film suggests that the connection that listeners, including those who have no professional relation to music, have to the subject, is very powerful, which sounds like a platitude until you see it in action. Music, for many individuals, seems to have an access to emotional states that family and friends cannot reach.

Oliver Sacks has talked about this in Musicophilia. It probably has something to do with the number of different parts of the brain that are engaged when we listen to music so that, even when substantial parts of the brain are damaged through senility, music can still activate and connect parts of the mind, which in the case of the very old, is essentially connecting them to an earlier version of themselves. This may not seem like all that much unless you see the footage. Something very fundamental about the self gets encoded into the brain when we listen to music, and a great deal of that is recoverable when little else is. This much is verifiable through experiment.

- How does the brain construct a sense of self when we listen to music?

I’m glad to say that my dreams came true. I saw America changed through music.
