Musical hallucinations

The music itself sounds in my head. Familiar?

It happens, probably, with everyone, what is there. Cling to some “girl Praskovya”, spin-spin and stop. Another thing is when the melody begins to sound continuously and is perceived as if it comes from the outside. That’s trouble.

“A song playing in your head from time to time is normal. Another thing, musical hallucinations, they become a serious problem.

Genetic codes and music

Nigel Helyer from the University of Western Australia (Univesrity of Western Australia) and the University laboratory SymbioticA created the project GeneMusiK, which turns genetic codes into musical works and Vice versa.

Attempts to convert the decoded DNA sequence of notes made previously. But the authors of the project argue that for the first time such work “went so far”.

History Of Neurophon

The first Neurophon was made when Patrick was only 14 years old, in 1958. The following year, Flanagan gave a lecture at the Houston Amateur Radio Club, where he demonstrated the possibilities of his invention.

Fame grew every year. In 1961, correspondents from Life magazine literally settled in Patrick’s house. They took about a thousand pictures, following him everywhere he went. Continue reading

Oh, people, if you ever read this, you will remember that you have been unjust to me; let the unfortunate be comforted by seeing a fellow-sufferer who, in spite of all the opposition of nature, has done everything in his power to become a worthy artist and man.

Music therapy (part 1)

I have a rare profession for our country – music therapist. I was convinced that the creators of great melodies are powerful healers who are able to help a person no worse than any famous psychic.

For the last 10 years I have been practicing music therapy with special enthusiasm, conducting thousands of sessions for adults and children.

I was able to achieve a fracture during a number of diseases, “remove” speech disorders and behavioral disorders, eliminate the symptoms of neurological problems. Continue reading
