Music has helped shaped cultures, mold religions, entice revolutions and define generations. With so many contributions on a global scale it’s hard to forget this constant’s effect and importance on our own human psyche.

Motivation, solace, joy, and comfort are just a few of the basic human emotions people submerge themselves with listening to music. The purpose of my senior project is to prove that music perception is one of the strongest influences tied to human emotion and my goal is to support this theory not on paper… But through audio dialogue and music.

The following paper is a complimentary piece to go along with the main idea of my podcast titled “The Playlist of Life”. This document will include information such as the breakdown of podcasting, where the idea for the Playlist of Life came from, research and analysis revolving around the topic of music perception, the equipment and software needed to start a podcast, and the end goal for my senior project.
