Music, explained?

"Music is everywhere. We hear it in our cars, in coffee shops, on TV, and at church. We use it to learn, remember, feel, celebrate, and connect. Every known human culture has had some form of music. But in the rest of the animal world, the ability to understand and create music is rare. Where humans might hear rhythm and melody, rhesus monkeys, for example, just hear noise. So what makes music so universal among humans? How does sound become something more? And how does it evoke such a wide range of emotions?"
Joe Posner of Vox tackled these questions in a recent episode of the Netflix' Explained series. See Music, explained (Episode 20) here.
