Music can definitely impact someone in a strong way. After listening to
certain kinds of music for extended periods (I still love Merzbow), I
feel I can think more clearly, and I am much less likely to be
agitated. I actually find that the more aggressive and noisy the
material is, the more numb I become. Likewise, listening to The
Unicorns has be hopping around and kissing boys, and listening to John
Cage has be flipping a coin to decide on breakfast.
