A book about music, philosophy and emotions.

Music is able to move people, to ease their pain, or simply to make them want to dance. But what do we experience exactly listening to Chopin, Pink Floyd or Bob Dylan? Which features characterize our musical experience?

In this book Tomas Serrien investigates the ways we experience music and sound. Although music is meant to be li

Uit! Geweldig interessant boek. Niet alleen omdat het geschreven is door mijn broer, maar ook omdat het de lezer meeneemt in een fijne, niet te ingewikkelde en diepgravende zoektocht naar hoe wij muziek ervaren. Heel wat nieuwe muziek ontdekt en op een andere manier leren luisteren.
Ik hoop dat mijn broer even veel boeken gaat schrijven als ik, want zijn debuut heb ik alvast met veel plezier en interesse gelezen.

Een gewéldig boek over muziek.

Onlangs las ik ook ‘How Music Works’ van David Byrne, en dat was goed, maar wat Tomas Serrien deed, is nog eens zoveel beter (en tegelijk veel bondiger).

Serrien gaat naar de kern: de muzikale ervaring. Dat is de essentie van muziek. Niet hoe iets gespeeld of opgenomen is, maar welke ervaring die muzikale klanken ons bieden en wat we daarbij voelen.

Wauw.

Muziekjournalisten die dit boek niet lezen, moeten worden ontslagen!

Het moet fijn zijn om van je passies je beroep te kunnen maken. ‘Nadenken en naar muziek luisteren,’ zo schrijft Tomas Serrien aan het begin van zijn dankwoord, ‘ik kan niet zonder.’ Voor mij is dat herkenbaar. Beide activiteiten maken samen met lezen, schrijven en piano spelen deel uit van mijn dagelijks leven. Meer zelfs: ik heb er - vermoed ik – dat dagelijks leven naar ingericht. En van al die kleine passies is muziek ongetwijfeld de oudste, de meest constante, de nog steeds verrassendste en ...more

Tomas Serrien (1992) tries to live in wonder, with philosophy and art as a guide. In 2015 he won the Geert Grote Pen, a thesis prize awarded to the best Dutch master’s thesis in philosophy.
