A tap of the foot, a rush of emotion, the urge to dance; without instruction or training we all respond intuitively to music. 'Comparing Notes' explains why we are all musical, how music makes sense and why abstract patterns of sound that don't actually mean anything have come to play such a central role in our lives.
