Aching and Breaking with Longing: The Impact of Music on Emotions

Without a word of French, somehow I still dither on the brink of complete blubbering mess every time I listen to Jacque Brel’s “ne me quitte pas”. The Francophone, chanson singer lays claim to a wide breath of musical influence, with Nina Simone and David Bowie noting him as a key inspiration to their work. The question arises, why does this Belgian born, strange looking, gap toothed singer move me or any Anglophone alike so much? The answer I’ve come to suspect is that music can act like a language all onto itself. Unlike spoken languages, such music operates solely as an emotional dialogue where one emotion expressed brings about a counter emotional affect in the listener. Here, I’ll examine music’s impact on the full emotional spectrum of the human condition. Sex may sell, and, as such, usurp the charts for the most part, but, as we’ll see, music can stir even the darkest, and more subtle crevasses of the our minds.

Deutscher Gesundheitsmarkt: Hier sind wir!

Mimi Hearing Technologies kooperiert jetzt mit der BARMER – Deutschlands größter gesetzlicher Krankenversicherung.

Dieser Satz liest sich ziemlich unspektakulär und trocken. Jedoch ist das ein wesentlicher Meilenstein, seitdem alles im Jahre 2013 mit einer Hörhilfe App und der darauffolgenden Mimi Hörtest App begann.
