Whether as a way to treat mental illness, achieve top performance in sports, or for propaganda purposes – music is used in many different ways and not always according to the artists’ intentions. What do we experience when we listen to music? What effect does music have on us and our social encounters? We will discuss these and further questions with the following speakers:
Helmut Oehring, composer, author, and director
PD Dr. Daniela Sammler, research group leader at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences in Leipzig
Prof. Dr. Dörte Schmidt, professor of musicology at the Berlin University of the Arts and member of the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities
Moderator: Katja Weber, radioeins/rbb
Concert: Compositions by Helmut Oehring. Musicians: Antje Thierbach (oboe, bass oboe, voice) and Clemens Hund-Göschel (prepared piano, voice)Share this post

Wie mächtig ist das Hören?
Sehr mächtig, meint der Komponist Helmut Oehring. Hören sei eine sensible Angelegenheit, „über die ich gern entscheiden möchte, es aber nicht immer kann: Es ist nicht so leicht, die Ohren zu verschließen“.
Is our view of the world really an objective one, or is what we see, in fact, a construct of our brain? And what challenges do we face when communicating with machines?Learn more
Why is touch so important for human beings? What role does it play for our social lives? And how do touch and emotions impact each other?Learn more
As a neuropsychologist and group leader at the Max Planck Institute for Cognitive and Neurosciences in Leipzig, PD Dr. Daniela Sammler, born in 1978, investigates the functional mechanisms of the brain at the interfaces between music and language. Sentence melody, songs and harmony are just as much a part of her field of work as the influences of top musical form in professional musicians or brain damage in stroke patients on their motor-cognitive performance. Research stays at the Hôpital de la Pitié-Salpêtrière in Paris, the Université Nord-de-France in Lille, the University of Glasgow as well as the Western Sydney University led to numerous publications in internationally recognized journals documenting her extensive repertoire in the field of music and language cognition. Her dissertation on the comparative neuroanatomy of music and speech processing in patients with brain lesion or pharmacoresistant epilepsy was awarded the Otto Hahn Medal of the Max Planck Society for outstanding scientific achievements in 2009. In her habilitation at the University of Leipzig, which she completed in January 2018, she examines the neuronal foundations of intonation in speech and music.Close
