Episode Two: Jesse Dietschi
Meet Jesse Dietschi, a composer and bass player whose music straddles that jazz-meets-classical line. We talk about his beautiful piece ‘Canmore’ and the personal family story behind it. We also talk to Dr. Kate Einarson about how music sounds happy vs sad, and why we like those catchy chorus lines so much - at least to a point (looking at you, John Mayer).
