Using Music to Shift Emotions with Jamie Pabst

Spiritune: your soundtrack to a healthier life!

We’re joined by Jamie Pabst, founder and CEO of Spiritune, a music therapy app that supports people’s mental health. Spiritune makes explicit what most of us know implicitly: music can shift our emotional and cognitive state.

What does “clinical-grade music” sound like? We listen to two 3-minute tracks, the first designed to move us from anxious to peaceful and the second from lethargic to victorious.

Along the way, Jamie points out the different music therapy principles at work:

  • the “iso-principle” of meeting people where they are

  • rhythm and neural entrainment

  • the power of tone to create connection

A true exploration of consciousness! We talk about emotional literacy, how music can help both shift and evoke emotions, what it means to be “genre-agnostic,” the potential role of generative AI in shaping the technology, and much more.

Thank you Jamie!

In this here Afterparty, Tasha puts on her music producer hat, which leads to a fascinating discussion on the cultural specificity of musical preferences, the true nature of musical complexity and human preferences, and various other tasty morsels.

*In an effort to sustain our antics and continue paying our producer Timmy, the Afterparty will move behind ye old paywall at the end of May 2024 as soon as we have time to figure out how to do that. Please join us if you can!
