‘We archived two magical musical pieces on DNA’
a new method to compose music by means of BCI
you and me are just wired differently
‘I’ve been listening to fish squawks, burble and pops for nearly 30 years now’
Lately, I stumbled a lot of times on a ‘Left or Right Brain Test’ in my Facebook feed, probably because I have a lot of artists and musicians among my friends.
I programmed sound frequencies a little bit differently in left and right sides so when they are heard together they produce a third frequency which can be heard just inside of our heads,’
You can actually do four different musical tests, a Tonedeaf test, an adaptive Pitch test, a rhythm test and an Associative Musical Visual intelligence test. I scored quite high for some, and quite low for others! But I have no musical training whatsoever, and I have never learned music, so musicians probably have an advantage, at least I suppose.
The recording is very weird and amazing, it sounds like the high-pitched voice of a crazy woman over a deeper more masculine voice, going faster and faster, so that you can feel a panic rising from the recording before everything calms down. The two men think they may have developed a tool to listen to the brain
According to the online poll, the most unwanted elements in a song are ‘cowboy music, bagpipes, accordions, opera, rap music, children’s voices, tubas, drum machines and advertising jingles’.
Those who only took exercise improved their capacity by 29 % (significantly lower than the 2nd group) and those who only listened to music improved their capacity by 19 %,.. not too shabby for couch potatoes!
‘I am nervous and excited at the possibility that we will be able to fully sequence John Lennon’s DNA, very soon I hope. With researchers working on ways to clone mammoths, the same technology certainly could make human cloning a reality’, he declared
Between Vacation vinyl, Origami vinyl, Amoeba, High Fidelity, Rockaway, Mono Records, Franky’s, Jacknife, Permanent Records,… I am surrounded by shops selling vinyl, and I am just talking about the closest ones! How did this happen?
This means that a love of music is part of our DNA, it goes beyond just being something we learn to something we are born with as simply an animal in a world of appearances.
Dawkins’ talk turns EDM, repeating stuff like ‘Memes spread through human culture, genes spread through the gene pool’ with electronic dance beats
I am always struggling about this idea, and my left and right hemispheres are always competing with each other – although this simplistic vision as known as, ‘right brain versus left brain’, is now perceived as a myth by neurobiologists
‘We had one that was silent – that was a control house – and we had one that was played classical music, we had one that was played Cliff Richard and we had one that was played Black Sabbath.’
A Swedish company named Pause, which ordinarily just sells stereo equipment, has come up with a new product, that each of us can’t wait to experiment: a designed coffin that will play music for you during eternity.
Recently, a friend of mine, a mathematician, and I have been interested in seeing if there is a connection between our astrological signs/horoscopes and our musical preferences
We find pleasant what we are used to listen to, and unpleasant novelties we can’t comprehend at the first listening. On the other hand, musical training increases our exposure to different kinds of chords and harmonies, and so also increases our ability to identify them and enjoy them.
He wondered if the mathematical laws that apply to group behavior in flocks of birds could also describe what he was seeing, so he got the idea to use software developed for analyzing particles in a fluid to track moshers’ motions! Surprisingly, he found out that the moshers had the same statistical distribution as the speeds of atoms in a gas!
Researchers found they could clearly establish preferences, as one of the male was consistently choosing the Scissor Sisters song, and the other one the Vangelis tune
Space will start and stop playing the song, left arrow will decrement the current play velocity by one, right arrow will increment the current play velocity by one, down arrow will set the current play velocity to zero (giving a good scratch-record effect), control will freeze on the current beat, and shift will bounce between the current beat and all the similar sounding beats (the branching points).
From a Universe of choices, the Gimbal App (or some variant –that isn’t what is happening now, it is what will happen tomorrow) will track your tastes and your lifestyles into a perfect emersion into the sounds you want to hear and don’t even know you want to hear.
Now here was a smart idea: Spotify got a psychologist to study the role music has in sex (according to Hypebot). The psychologist, a certain Dr. Daniel Mullensiefen (with a name like that he was hardly gonna become a porn star) took a “sampling of 2000 participents, and here, fresh off Hypebot, is the result
His new single, appropriately named ‘Reach for the Stars’ – actually I take this back because the red planet is not a star! – premiered on Mars last Wednesday at 1 pm PT in the afternoon, and that’s a good thing nobody was there to hear it it!
The authors examined over 1,000 Top 40 recordings from five decades, and found different things such as an increase of female artists and songs longer in duration, but also a progressive increase of songs have using minor chords (associated with sad feeling) and slower tempos.
Is she completely insane, again what is she afraid of? That some crazy fan sells her DNA to some mad lab for a complete DNA profiling? That someone pick up one of her hair to make a clone? Madonna, I have news, science is not there yet! There is no way I can find a justification to such behavior
Hang about, why shouldn’t the Stones send holograms into every home in the county??? You pay for your ticket and a hologram of your favorite Stones period shows up and serenades you!!!
while I absolutely agree that the likes of Britney Spears has buried the hatchet in the back of any concept of live music, it is ridiculous and in astounding bad taste to drag poor Lisa out of her grave to suing for her supper.
‘Hopefully, different artists are able to bring out their favorite artists. Hopefully, we can see Jimi Hendrix and Marvin Gaye. Let’s see what happens.’
Ok calm down, I am already seeing you screaming at the screen of your computer, yelling bullshit,…. But it is what it is, a study based on last.fm… The problem is that I hardly use last.fm, tons of people do, but many don’t
Vocalist Franky Perez (Scars on Broadway), guitarists Dave Kushner and Dave Warren, bassist Scott Shriner (Weezer) and drummer Joey Castillo (Queens of the Stone Age), making PusherJones a good candidate for the term ‘supergroup’.
Each time, DJs provide the musical background for the night, you can even take a tour of the museum with some prestigious scientist, there are food, drinks, and the whole place is transformed into a nightclub.
I’m listening to Kurt Vile as I wrote and I am not certain that is a good thing at all. “Music like scent has an immediate neuro pathway that can bypass your thinking brain and effect your emotional state.”
Researchers think that parrots’ dancing skills come from their talent for mimicking the sounds of their surrounding, which made them develop a very good coordination between their excellent sense of hearing and their motor functions
power ballads were big in the 80s, the late 70s-early 80s were the most creative, people had simpler tastes before the 90s (or were dumber), and we are all gonna be deaf soon.
all the things that we consider normal doesn’t exist, all that exist is the piano and his ability, some place in his brain, where it slots in and is his life.
Mullen was right: the click was off by six milliseconds
