Music accompanies us daily. Whether it's at home during the morning coffee, on the way to work, as part of social media content or on television. The type of music we listen to always influences our mood, perception and motivation. Parents use quiet music to calm their children down, others motivate themselves with energetic sounds for sports and even filmmakers skilfully use music to get us out of our reserve and to convey the mood of individual scenes not only visually but also on the soundtrack. So why not use music in the operating theater as well?
