      Going to be gone for awhile so I thought I'd post one of my faves--and you know I have many faves--before I left. Take care and if you are in the wind--safe ride.

      If you want to keep in touch, please private message as I will be checking in.

      Love you all!

      P.S. I actually saw The Doors in concert at Fillmore East back in the day--see how old I am? :)

      Here's a great song that was released yesterday that also has an amazing message that speaks to me:
      The World is a Beautiful Place & I am No...

      Amazing - he composed a piece of music that sounds exactly like my tinnitus. Must be some kind of evil genius. :confused:

      I hope I didn't cause any offence with this post? It used to be one of my favourite pieces of art work. When I was studying music and sound engineering I learned about discretionary attention and the way the the ears can separate a background sound from a foreground sound, which is why microphones pick everything up and so much post production has to be done to get it to 'sound right'. This was often used in soundscaping where you would mix different environmental sounds together by careful placement of microphones to give a richer experience for the audience.

      Anyway the composer John Cage was trying to make a point with this piece namely that silence is an illusion. The only place it really exists is in the vacuum of space. We choose to tune in and tune out according to our discretionary attention; attendance to tension.

      Somehow I was able to habituate to my pulsate T from an early age but I struggle with this new sound. Even though I know the theory I still am, for now, defeated and one of my favourite art works is ruined.

      Also note that he called the piece 4'33". Time. When we listen to silence we are hearing time itself. We cannot shut off our ears the same way we can close our eyes and we must travel through time to listen. As Aristotle said all senses are a form of touch, to see is to touch to hear is to be touched.

      Anyway I didn't intend to cause any offence.

      Not at all my friend! :) I took it as a very witty entry into the thread and was attempting in my clumsy way to play along. I've read about the piece and the thinking behind it before, although I've never seen it performed. I like the idea... I think it may actually be the only piece of music I could competently perform in concert myself.
      Most of mine also. As a long time music enthusiast, the experience is just not the same anymore. I can still follow and enjoy a tune, but the sense of immersion and transcendence is gone. Quite a big loss, unfortunately.
      Reminds me of another rather sentimental song by the band 'Lost in the Trees' who I posted a few days ago which pulls a nice trick in these lines:

      "Time, it will not erase me.
      For what is time?
      It's just passing by."

      Time. It Will Not Erase Me
