Little is known about common brain systems that support the integration of extended, naturalistic music stimuli. We show that music synchronizes brain response across listeners in bilateral auditory midbrain and thalamus, auditory cortex, right-lateralized structures in frontal and parietal cortex, and motor planning regions of the brain. Results show that a hierarchical distributed network is synchronized between individuals during the processing of extended musical sequences.
