Music: The Quickening Art

Music: The Quickening Art April 11, 2012

This recent video demonstrates an experiment that was done on an old man in a nursing home. He was inert and unresponsive… until he was given an ipod and a pair of headphones so he could listen to the music he loved as a young man.
Watch what happens, and be in awe:

    So music really can make that much of a difference. I think maybe God wanted me to hear that today. Thanks for sharing, YGG!

    Good music , or bad, has an effect on people. I’ve been in church services where music did more than the sermons did. This just proves that music is a very powerful thing.

  • Indeed. Speaking as someone who really lives and breathes music, I felt a powerful connection to the old man in the video, when his whole face just lit up with delight. I feel as though I can identify with him. I understand what he felt in that moment.

    A good movie to watch along these lines would be The Music Never Stopped. It came out a year or two ago. Just watched it…really, really good.
