Robert Gupta: Music for the mentally ill

By Sruti

“While playing for the homeless and mentally ill, violinist with the LA Philharmonic Robert Vijay Gupta realized that music can speak when words fail. With a parallel interest and training in neuroscience, Robert is passionate about discovering more about how music affects the brain. Robert talks about the special bond he shares with Nathaniel Ayers, the brilliant schizophrenic musician featured in the movie ‘The Soloist’, and his mission to light the fire of music in the darkest corner of the human soul.”
