TEDxFultonStreet: Yehuda Hannai


This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. For centuries, a pair of notes in a particular combination called the "tri-tone" was considered to be the devil's work, and was forbidden across Europe. 100 years ago jazz was considered to be "lewd and improper for decent company". Nazi Germany banned certain composers as subversive. And even today, the Taliban consider much of American music to be corrupting. How can music have this influence? Explore with Yehuda the universality of the relationship between sound and listener.
