I play music that is old and that is new. Some of it is digital while some is analog. It is from many different countries; sometimes it is loud and at other times it is quiet.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sat. 11/24/18 1:53pm fred:

Going back to the brain being a part of hearing, I'm very aware of that, because my left ear doesn't work (or maybe it's been traveling for a few decades). So I reconstruct a lot, sometimes comically wrong. And when it does hear better because of an infection, I can't understand much, everything sounds distorted
Avatar 🎃 Sat. 11/24/18 1:54pm Mayuko:

@Dave not yet, as far as I know.
  Sat. 11/24/18 1:58pm rw:

I don't know how interested anybody may be but this show and the comments made me think of this sculpture: https://www.weho.org/community/arts-and-culture/visual-arts/urban-art-program/steve-roden-with-an-ear-to-the-earth I think it was the ear mushrooms that triggered my memory of it.
Avatar 🎃 Sat. 11/24/18 1:59pm Mayuko:

@fred That does sound like a unique hearing experience. I think it's really fascinating how our brain dictates/adjusts/put bias/sort our hearing perception of the world and not the ears. Maybe none of us will ever get to hear things 100% AS IS.

it's always subjective, just as what you see is.

@Mayuko: it kinda turns everything into a noise show. Which sounds good at first but gets old quick
  Sat. 11/24/18 2:02pm rw:

fred that's kind of fascinating that your ear does better when it's infected. And that your brain has compensated like that!

when i was little i didn't want eye glasses, so i passed eye exams by strategy. then when i was about 12 i wanted to look different, so i let myself fail the eye exam. then when i was getting a driver license i didn't want to be required to have them, so i fooled the eye examiners again.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 11/24/18 8:49pm coelacanth∅:

i really like this episode, Mayuko!
and about what you said about talking with someone in a crowded restaurant i've had trouble understanding the person i'm trying to listen to in that situation for as long as i remember and i wonder if it's because at some point long ago i decided all sounds were worth listening to so i am always dividing my attention. i guess it may offend someone but i'm not trying to do it!
hearing tests suggest my hearing to be comparable to the average person less than 1/2 my age, so it's not that.
anyway i thought you might find this interesting.
i read that it was common for Robert Johnson to be at a busy party, talking with people, while somewhere in the background a little radio was playing some song he'd never heard before, and you'd never notice any lack of attention to the conversation; but then the next day he could play the whole song that played. maybe i need to make a deal with a devil to acquire such ability!
anyway take care and Thank you.
Avatar 🎃 Sat. 12/1/18 11:36am Mayuko:

Thanks for listening & comment coelacanth. Your ears & brain are open to the world! Also explains why you're a fmu listener! :) I heard people do go crazy when they start finding more meanings in all the sounds than their brain can handle though - so be careful!
That is a very interesting episode re Robert Johnson, sounds like when there's music his brain would just tuned to it automatically or something. Thanks for sharing this story!
