Interview with Geek Pop’s Hayley Birch

by Eva Amsen

Geek Pop is an annual online music festival with songs about science. This year’s festival launches on March 12 online, and also has two physical events in the UK (Bristol on March 11 and London on March 18). Last week I talked with Geek Pop organizer Hayley Birch about science in music:

(I’m also trying to figure out how to get all the interviews I’ve done so far into iTunes. Stay tuned: I’ll figure it out before the end of the week. Update: figured it out, but decided not to do it!)

I have a science and music and neuroscience themed blog where I just started collecting names for people to interview on being both scientists and musicians! I thought it’s pretty cool that you’re doing this too, and planning to make a documentary sounds amazing. I plan to start my interview series because I know a few people that fit that description and I am a grad student and play bass in a local band too.

Anyway, I just wanted to comment and say that I’m adding you to my “Blogs with Moxie” list on the site. I also added you on twitter!

Hi Princess Ojiaku,
I am not sure if it covers entirely your topic, but I read recently this article on on what the effect is of music on the brain, the professor who wrote Prof Paul Robertson, is doing a study on this. Perhaps it could be of help for any background information.

Hi Princess! Great minds think alike…
Let me know how you’re getting along with your interviews. We should collaborate on something at some point =)
