Yep, and I'm fairly high so, didn't mean to be vague.
I'm in the same boat. made the vague very vague. lol
...cheers, I'll work on that because I don't see myself being any less stoned this evening
I'm a professional musician, and I've always been fascinated by the fact that non-lyrical music affects people in similar ways across the globe, i.e. minor chords and keys evoke sad/melancholy feelings, and major keys and chords evoke happy or upbeat feelings, or slow tempos generally bring a feeling of peace and tranquility, while faster tempos elicit excitement and energy, etc.. Why should this be so? Without lyrics telling us what the song is about, how are specific combinations of vibrations and tempi affecting us in such similar ways? When I was a child, I wanted to be a sort of Joseph Campbell of this phenomena, as there was very little to no research in this area. I think there are some who are currently doing research on this topic, but I haven't looked into it...
You cant physicaly reach out and touch sound, but you can ad your touch to a sound,Just the same way you cant taste music,but you can make a tasty jam of a song.Of course you can feel it,it is a whole universe unto itself ,with so many different feels.Not just emotionaly but physicaly the sound waves bombard your sensory array to produce the overall sensations,its within the sound frequencies and dynamic tempo which will determine the impression of the produced sound.
...awesome. Back in the day folks were terrified by the tritone. My thought is that is brought them closer to themselves. Or, helped organize their inner being in a way they had yet to experience.
sweet! I like that.
i love the high vibration music rhythms i hear. and produce my self.

I love composers that push the envelope, if for no other reason than to freak people out of their comfort zones I play a lot of 20th century classical composers and there are chord structures and unique development sections that elicit feelings in me that I've never experienced before, and not all of them are comfortable. You can feel yourself stretching to attempt to understand what the composer's idea is, and that capacity for new emotional depth is often translated to other areas of life. Way cool...
music is energy , so be careful
since i have two 12 inch rockford punch p3's in a hatchback i get to feel my music quite alot lol
I think I've listened to this more than a person should

^^ Hell, yeah! My ex-wife LOVED the Doors and got me into them. That's a good track. I know I've listened to these guys WAY too much (esp. this track):
"and then they went... 1, 2, 3, 4...."
I can see the people who were pretty messed-up while listening to that for the first time lookin' like they just tripped on their shoe laces thinking it was a straight-up 4/4.
Totally fun to play as a drummer.
...mind if I ask which instrument? By 'chord structures' I'm guessing guitar with some piano?
...so good. Porcupine Tree is quite adventurous.
...Incubus - undeniably so
...just braiding a thread.
Violin, actually, though I love classical guitar (rock, too). I play with my pianist buddy mostly...
That's awesome, the violin is not what most people think it is! My introduction to playing with a violinist was in high school...french jazz. Weird combo, actually
French Jazz is awesome like Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli! Those guys ROCKED!
Starts rockin' at about 1:30 in...
Yeah, I STILL am not sure what the meter is on this one. You're a drummer? That's cool. I love bands that fuck with meter and tempi all over the place (Tool is my favorite, but King Crimson, Mars Volta and Frank Zappa all do it), keeps it interesting...
