Music in the Head: Living at the Brain-Mind Border, 2009

“This book is about that bodily or mental condition or experience that has become part of me, and that I believe will reverberate to many people….The music is there the moment I have the thought of listening for it, before I can start an active process of listening.  I am not even always sure that I wished to check.  Often it just impinges out of the blue.  Whenever I am just thinking nothing.  I just seems as if it is there waiting.  Waiting for me to pay it attention.  Where is it?  Somewhere in the distance, usually over my right shouler.  About half a mile away.”
