Use Your Ears

Armando Ianucci takes a quirky look at how we listen to music.

Why is our response to music not just about

the piece of music in itself, but also about the circumstances in which we hear it - Who we're with, whether we rushed to get there, what else is on our mind.

How musically literate do you have to be to appreciate classical music? And does more music in our lives, mean that we listen less? Armando explores these questions with the social psychologist, David Hargreaves.
