Neuroscientists study our love for deep bass sounds
Have you ever wondered why bass-range instruments tend to lay down musical rhythms, while instruments with a higher pitch often handle the melody?
According to new research from Laurel Trainor and colleagues at the McMaster Institute for Music and The Mind, this is no accident, but rather a result of the physiology of hearing.
In other words, when the bass is loud and rock solid, we have an easier time following along to the rhythm of a song.
