Roger Dumas

Are you listening more, but enjoying it less? In “Your Brain Hears More Than You Think,” Dr. Roger Dumas invokes The Doors and Sir Arthur Sullivan in his warning of digital audio’s Dark Side. He also offers hope in the form of cutting-edge technology that will forever change the way you hear music.

He met John Lennon. He taught Prince how to program Synth. He was on the team that composed Funkytown. The work he wants to debut on the TEDx stage thrills him even more and will bring insights into how we subconsciously consume sound from the great artists we admire – the brain’s relationship with music.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
