In this Aspen Institute video, producer/DJ Moby offers a personal perspective on the role of music in his life and his perspective on the benefits and future of music therapy.
Moby’s discussion is close to an hour long and rambles a bit, but he shares his take on why music is more than just entertainment, but can be a tool for therapy.
Musician and DJ Moby works extensively with the the Institute for Music and Neurologic Function, a New York non-profit agency that offers music therapy programs for individuals with a wide range of neurological conditions, including strokes, trauma, dementia, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases. The Institute is directed by music therapist Dr. Concetta M. Tomaino, with scientific guidance from the neurologist Oliver Sacks.
