Transcript of the video on my personal experiences with Ditrokid
Hello goodnight my name is Mercedes Moss and I’m a music publisher. I got into music publishing as an indie music publisher in order to share Don’s Songby Lyndon Delano Moss with the world.
Don’s Song is a guitar instrumental that was written made by Lyndon Delano Moss nearly two
decades ago as he taught his son Don to walk. I got this song because I had bought this subscription at Distrokid music distribution company. I had not done anything with it for about four months.
I asked my brother to give me some music for publication. He gave me this song and I was so blown away by it. I felt exhilarated and so happy. I felt as if I were skipping along.
The story behind Don’s Song by Lyndon Delano Moss
I asked my brother to share the story behind Don’s Song:
Was he thinking words?
What was he thinking when he wrote this melody?
He responded that he had actually heard this song in his ear as he taught his son Don to walk with a 4/4 music beat. He said that he counted one two three four as he taught his son to walk.
I was blown away because I’ve never heard about anybody teaching a child to walk with a musical beat. I subsequently checked online and discovered that in recent years, scientists have published scientific research that shows that there is indeed a connection between musical rhythm or beats and movement.
My brother’s music was connected to a later scientific discovery called Rhythmic Auditory Stimulation
The science is called Rhythmic Auditory Stimulation. It shows that people walk better with good balance, their muscles are stronger when they walk to strong musical pulsations. Dr. Jessica Grahn, a neuroscientist and a musician herself, discovered through research focusing on brain waves, that there are movement centers in the brain that become activated when people hear music rhythms.
Dr. Grahn now uses this information to help people with movement disorders like Parkinson’s disease to walk. In Parkinson’s people freeze. Music pulsations or rhythm of beats help them to walk without freezing so terribly.
I was so excited about Don’s Song by Lyndon Delano Moss that I brought it up to Distrokid. The song is now on Amazon, Deezer, Google Play YouTube, Spotify, Shazam and Pandora. It is widely distributed on many outlets.
