Dan Levitin has one of the coolest resumes around: session musician, recording engineer, record producer, music journalist and, now, assistant professor at McGill University. He runs the school’s Levitin Laboratory for Musical Perception, Cognition and Expertise, which studies the brain’s interactions with music. Tonight, Mr. Levitin, who holds a doctorate in cognitive psychology, delivers a lecture at the Freer Gallery of Art titled “Your Brain on Music.” He’ll draw on both his music-industry and academic experiences as he discusses topics such as whether parts of the brain have evolved just to produce and process music. His talk begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Freer’s Eugene & Agnes E. Meyer Auditorium, 12th Street and Independence Avenue Southwest. For tickets ($13 to $25), visit www.residentassociates.org or call 202/252-0012.
