Why “biomusical engineering”? This refers to investigating the impact of music on the human body—our well-engineered systems of life that can think, respond to, and become activated by the well- engineered system of sounds we call music! The journal is devoted to furthering the understanding of why and how this thing called “music” has such a profound impact on human function and behaviors. Those in the field of engineering sciences have much to contribute to this understanding. Now that the study of music and the brain is rigorously pursued, science and engineering proposes new questions.
