Over de auteur (2008)

The author is a space scientist of international reputation with a close and active relation with music (he studied organ with the late maestros Hťctor Zeoli in Buenos Aires and Hans Jendis in GŲttingen), who organized and directed the international workshops on the Neuropsychological Foundations of Music at the Carinthian Music Festivals in Ossiach, Austria. These workshops, held regularly between 1973 and 1985, have been credited as being the originators of the interdisciplinary approach to the study of music perception. In 2007 he was invited to deliver the opening lecture on Music and the Evolution of Human Brain Function at the international congress Mozart and Science in Baden/Vienna, Austria.
