For 53 of the 61 participants, their perceived exertion was lower during the jymmin session than the passive-listening session, the study found. Thats interesting, Fritz says, because when jymmin you cant be distracted from your proprioception the awareness of your bodys position in space and the force its exerting. On the contrary, you must focus on your muscles. Youre playing a melody and then remembering, OK, if Im at this position, then I can make this tone, he says. Your proprioception is your guide to playing the music. Other experts are impressed by the technological innovation behind the jymmin set-up, but have some questions about the studys design. One concern is that Fritz reported perceived exertion not as raw scores, but as ratios of how a participant felt about jymmin versus passive listening. The raw scores are important because previous research has shown that during very intense workouts, the distraction effect disappears: The strain on your body is so great that your brain ignores the music. These ratios are just frustrating, Lane says. They take away the ability to interpret the results. And if the data are true, its unclear why the jymmin set-up would lead to lower scores of perceived exertion. Fritz says there are many possibilities. It could be what he terms musical agency, or the sense that youre composing or tweaking the music. That might explain why runners tend to match their steps to musical beats, he says.It might be that they have some type of illusion of musical agency. Others are drawn to a social explanation instead.

Taylor Swift opens $4 million music education center in Nashville
For vast amount of music fans, Rdio has the best design and functionality, making it CNNMoney’s Best In Tech for the streaming music category. If you’ve never used a streaming music subscription service like Rdio or Spotify , understand that it’s not Pandora ( P ). You don’t pick a song or artist and then let the service build a randomly-generated playlist for you. Instead, for $10 a month, you have unfettered access to an online jukebox with tens of millions of songs. What really separates Rdio from the competition is its social backbone. You can follow friends, strangers, musicians, businesses, etc. and get a sense of what they’re listening to. Rdio will also recommend songs and artists for you to check out based on your friends’ interests. That may not seem like a big deal, but when you’re not quite sure what to listen to, this feature is one of the best in helping you figure it out. Another standout Rdio feature is the ability to build an online library full of “your” tracks. With rival services, having your favorite music in front of you means scrolling through hundreds of playlists in the sidebar of the app. It’s less than ideal.
