Soothing sounds or silence tend to help us work better. The power of a passing siren will disrupt our focus, but what about the music you’re listening to? What effect does it have on your brain?
All things in our universe are constantly in motion, vibrating. Even objects that appear to be stationary are in fact vibrating, oscillating, resonating, at various frequencies. Resonance is a type of motion, characterized by oscillation between two states.

Given that everything has a vibrational frequency, including ourselves, it makes sense that sound frequencies impact how we feel. That's why particular songs and types of music often bring about specific types of emotions from us.
