Dear list, As a scientist, musician and composer, I've noticed over the years that while listening to breaking waves I can sometimes get to really hear music. No marches or xmas stuff ;-) I think I've been able to listen like this for most of my life (47), and it's been quite productive at times. Recently, when flying home after a couple of weeks work in Italy, being really tired, I suddenly started to hear music in the jet engine noise and the disturbing thing was that it didn't stop until after landing. The timbres I tend to hear are synth-like (Prophet V in solo mode) with slow attacks and decays. In pitch, I guess it's from C4 down. /Mikael --------------------------------- Mikael Fernström, M.Sc., Lecturer Interaction Design Centre & UL Interactive Media Department of Computer Science and Information Systems University of Limerick Web:
