Unlocking the healing power of music

It’s the height of the COVID-19 pandemic and I’m listening to one of my favourite pieces of music in the study I’ve been working on for the last 13 weeks – Brian Eno’s Music for Airports.

Nothing out of the ordinary there really, and totally understandable given the difficult situation and continued lockdown regulations in the UK.

Except that Eno’s ambient classic is augmented with binaural beats, a kind of low-frequency hum that has been shown to have health benefits in the clinic.
