Answer: Mozart Effect

Quoting shrik for more details

Mozart K448 and Yanni’s Acroyali/Standing In Motion.

Supposedly the only pieces of music to reduce epileptic activity.

Connect to Jack-Jack being the Mozart effect – Kari the babysitter plays Mozart to aid in his ‘cognitive development’ in Jack-Jack Attack.

    this is the mozart effect, as displayed by the two pieces that have been known to exhibit it, mozart’s k 488/448 and yanni’s acroyali.

    jack jack’s superpowers in ‘jack jack attack’ are kindled (heh) by playing mozart

    1)Piano Sonata in D major
    2)Acroyali/Standing in Motion by Yanni
    Mozart Effect!

    Quoting wiki.. Jack Jack of incredibles was engaged in in “cognitive development” exercises including the playing of Mozart’s music, purportedly to stimulate his mind….

    mozart effect and jack jack realises his powers while listening to mozart; just like a whole lot of babies these days have to listen to a banal ‘aalis wail’.

    The Mozart Effect.
    1 = Sonata for Two Pianos in D major, K. 448 by Mozart
    2 = Acroyali/Standing in Motion by Yanni

    Kari, Jack-Jack’s baby-sitter in The Incredibles mentions that she brought some Mozart for Jack to listen to as it makes kids smarter. A reference to the earliest implementation of the meme, but wholly discountable.

    Mozart effect
    Sonata for Two Pianos in D major (Mozart)and Acroyali/Standing in Motion(Yanni) are determined to have ‘Mozart Effect’

    Bonus Cookie – Jack-Jack Parr’s(The Incredibles) powers awakened during his time with the babysitter when she started playing Mozart music.

    Its about the “Mozart effect” according to which listening to some of Mozart’s music may induce a short-term improvement on the performance of certain kinds of mental tasks known as “spatial-temporal reasoning”. The 2 songs are Sonata for Two Pianos in D major(K 448) By Mozart himself and “Acroyali” by Yanni. But these are not the only 2 songs even Piano Concerto No. 23 in A major(K488) is also known to induce the effect.

    The baby shown is Jack-Jack from the movie “The Incredible”. In a short film Jack-Jack Attack it is shown that its powers awakened during its time with the babysitter when she started playing Mozart music.
