There is a good summary of the program on that page, and the program is available via mp3 download or streaming media.

Of course the presentation is not comprehensive--it just touches down on a few ideas/issues--but it is a step forward into looking scientifically at music, and demonstrates some intriguing results.

Wow, I only listened to half of it, but the implications are amazing. The nature of perfect pitch- the relationship to language, etc. is really fascinating. It's funny, I've always heard people say that my ability to pick up languages and my musical talent were related, but I had no idea how much. That explains why hearing someone speak mispronounce spanish has the same effect on me as hearing an instrument played out of tune :D
