Is music hardwired?

I present for your consideration two videos.

One:  dogs playing the piano.  No, really:  they hear notes and then play them.

Two:  a human audience singing notes corresponding to the places where Bobby McFerrin lands as he jumps back and forth on a stage.

Coincidence?  I think not.


  1. Great, even Golden retreivers are better musicians than me.

  2. Hah! I know the feeling. I owned a guitar for a while - I plugged it in every six months or so for five minutes of noise.
