What does Music by Certified Genius Sound Like?

The following is music by / from people with genius level IQs!

I had the most wonderfully inspiring and humbling morning. I had the idea to put together this article about the sound of music genius.. certified MacArthur Grant winning genius. It took me on a music journey through all walks of sound. From jaw dropping jazz sax & violin concertos, lifting vocals, and even incredible sound design machines and what is being done about sound preservation.  I have found so much new music to listen to! I am currently listening to some sax work by Miguel Zenón and I am actually feeling something indescribable… incredible!

MacArthur Fellows!

You can watch and listen via the video example links or I have compiled all the examples into a playlist at the bottom of this post.

The MacArthur Fellows Program, MacArthur Fellowship, or “Genius Grant” is a prize awarded annually by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation typically to between 20 and 40 individuals, working in any field, who “show exceptional merit and promise for continued and enhanced creative work” and are citizens or residents of the United States.

Pop Musician Geniuses *for fun! 😉

  1. Shakira – IQ 140 – No Example necessary, but notable.
  2. Madonna – IQ 140 – No Example necessary, but notable.
  3. Natalie Portman – IQ 140 – One example, and it’s as priceless as you would expect! I can’t test the embed the video because apparently NBC Universal thinks that people in Brazil don’t deserve to listen to it.
