Musical Frequencies and the Human Body
Musical frequencies resonate in the body while playing a musical instrument, especially wind instruments. Direct contact with the mouthpiece on either the teeth or lips makes it possible for wind players to “feel” the resonant frequencies within the body cavity. Evelyn Glennie, a deaf percussionist, demonstrates that it’s possible for deaf people to enjoy playing an instrument, too. Because musical frequencies vibrate within us, does this have an affect on the human body?
