WPR Interview: All About the Bass

Wisconsin Public Radio - Central Time

I did an interview with Central Time on Wisconsin Public Radio on July 30th.

The segment’s title was “Great Bass Lines And The Science That Makes Us Love Them” and kicked off with Laurel Trainor, a professor of psychology, neuroscience and behaviour at McMaster University in Ontario, Canada. Laurel directs the Institute for Music and the Mind, and in a recent project, she measured brain response to high- and low-pitched sounds using an EEG. The segment continued with me geeking out over all sorts of bass lines with the hosts and callers.

It was my first radio interview, and it was a ton of fun. The only problem was that the show could never be long enough to cover all the great bassists and bass lines. Maybe there will be another.

Thanks to the show’s hosts, Rob Ferrett and Veronica Rueckert for having me on and for spreading the good word about the bass!
