This music is supposed to help you concentrate

press release:

Following the first TV episode of ‘GENIUS’ about the life of Albert Einstein (Sunday April 23rd/NatGeo), we’re delighted to send you a link to ‘Einstein’s Genius’, a piece of music that has been created to enhance focus and concentration, inspired by Einstein, his love of Bach and playing the violin.

 

The music mixes baroque violin music with strategic and scientific drums, pulses and movements, all scientifically proven to induce longer states of flow.  The video explains not only the technology and neuroscience behind how a piece of music  can help  enhance concentration, but also how Einstein’s attributed much of his success to listening to Bach and playing his own violin ‘Lina’, which he cited as his most important tool for sparking creativity.

Here’s some audio for you to sample. We’re none the wiser after a first listen.

  • For me music cannot enhance focus and concentration on other things than music. Background ‘music’ is just noise, or distracts me from focusing on other activities. I experienced that noise in the linked video as non-music. (My fault, sure.)

    • Not your fault. That junk was awful. May actually have the reverse of the intended effect with repeated listening.

  • “……. strategic and scientific drums, pulses and movements, all scientifically proven to induce longer states of flow.” It is very hard to find the words to even begin to criticize something so stupid and primitive, and so embarrassing in relation to Mr Einstein.

    This crap is supposed to help concentrating… but the ‘strategic drums (???), pulses and movements’ (???) will have been the first causes of concentration problems with these youngsters.

  • Here’s a trivia question: what work for violin and piano was dedicated to Einstein (and were intended for Einstein to play)? (I think this will be easy for participants in this forum).

  • Another madrigal – Martinu’s Three Madrigals for Violin and Viola were dedicated to Joe and Lil Fuchs who made the first recording of this delightful duet.
