There is a large project of research that we did. We started it in 2012, we wanted to check the effects of music at early stages of life. We started with music inside the incubators, and then we continued with music during early pregnancy. We developed two specific devices called the baby part to play music during pregnancy, but not through the belly – through the mother’s vagina, and there’s a whole project on the effects of music specifically during embryo development inside the incubators.
As I already told you, we saw an increase of fertilization and blastocysts rate, but of course, it doesn’t matter if it’s heavy metal, rock, pop or classical music because all of them, will give us this media culture movement just because of the mechanical vibrations. We found that we were able to increase the rates, but we didn’t find any significant difference depending on the type of music. All of our embryos which are inside the incubators have a 24-hour concert inside the incubator. Last year, we had many concerts in our laboratory, we invited Sharon Corr from The Corrs and Álex Ubago, both came to our laboratory to play a concert to all of our embryos around Europe, in all of our laboratories. All the patients had the opportunity to watch the concert and at the same time to watch the developing embryos which from an emotional point of view, was fantastic.
