    I am writing a book about the hand, how it works and how central it is to our culture and way of life. I want to help people gain an awareness of just how important the hand is and how it works on our behalf. the book is designed to be nontechnical and user-friendly with fun insights and mini-experiments that show how our hands do what they do best. BUT, I don’t want the book to be blah, so I am creating links in it to art, graphics, writings, images, mini-movies, and hopefully music. Your list is obscure but the title and interest is important. Any more suggestions or advice how to listen to the selections you have listed? I am perfectly willing to get a general license or internet-medial license to play any of the chosen songs. Your help and expertise will also go into the Acknowledgements section.
