A Journey into Sound (WARNING: Lots of videos)

by rg Wed Mar 19th, 2008 at 08:27:21 AM EST

Music is a personal business.  What I like, you hate (maybe); and vice versa.  Finding a person who has the same tastes as you is rare; but the more I open my ears the more I hear the same kinds of things happening across musical styles; the more my ears are emancipated from their tribal affiliations the more they start to hear what's going on...

But what about a person who has never listened to music before?  They don't hold tribal affiliations, but also they don't know what everyone is talking about.  Music?

What's that?

Also, in my experience a lot of people's ears have been blunted to music through the constant background tunes that are used to (I suggest) hide the not-so-pleasant noises of modern life.

This is my attempt to build music up again from its elements, the first of which would be rhythm, but I want to leave that for now and start with musical sounds (pitches) that we can recognise but maybe haven't paid attention to recently.

Heh!  A journey into sound, as Eric B & Rakim said.

I am not a Nord, unlike Sven, who is a Nord.  I am a Sud, who lives sort of in the Nord, but sort of not.

We who live in Temperate Climes sometimes find mushrooms.

Those in the Nord find Amanitas.
