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.

San Francisco, which is where these foghorns were

@Df ah! they must have been! I used to hear Long Island Rail Road horns in my previous apartment and I always loved it hearing them at night. So I think I can imagine how that feels.

@rw oh I'm glad I played it then! I really liked it too but I had been hesitating until right before I started my show, just because it was very long. Though the track needs that length!

Good day all, been listening and very much enjoying most of the way along and just now joining in comments.
Mayuko, I thought I heard your name mentioned on a show this morning as being FMU's new music director. Did I hear that correctly?

ooh wait..is this the first Saturday with the new show on after this?
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 Swag For Life Member 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 Swag For Life Member 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.
Avatar Sat. 11/24/18 2:00pm coelacanth∅:

it's always subjective, just as what you see is.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 11/24/18 2:01pm fred:

@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!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 11/24/18 2:02pm Mayuko:

@rw oh it looks so cool! I wanna try that in real. I love what he does, would love to learn more about his work!!!

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 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 Swag For Life Member 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!
