1. “Sound + color”?
The property of sounds to cause color images was noticed long ago. Much has been written about the color hearing of A. Scriabin, who saw musical sounds in color. The whole trend in art – color music – is based on this property of the sounds of music.
There is evidence that speech sounds, especially vowels, can also be perceived in color. A. Rambo even wrote a vowel sonnet in which he painted the sounds like this:
A – black; white – E; And – red; Y – green;
O – blue: I will tell you their secret in my turn … Continue reading
The theory states that the brain uses a holographic coding system, so that it can multivariately encode sensory signals through all the senses. Therefore, any stimulus, like sound, for example, can be transmitted through any other sense organ, in such a way that the brain can recognize the incoming signal exactly as sound, using a special type of signal code for sound.
It seems that, unwillingly, Patrick Flanagan made a significant contribution to the confirmation of this theory when, as a teenager, he invented a device that allows any person (even completely deaf, even with a surgically removed middle ear) and, even more so, fully atrophied auditory nerve) hear through the skin. Patrick called his device “Neurophone” (Neurophone). Interesting story of creating a neurophone. Continue reading
Listening to music at high volume while driving can impair the response and lead to a traffic accident. This conclusion was made by Canadian scientists.
Their research showed that it takes about 20% more time to play loud music to perform physical and mental exercises.
The British Royal Automobile Club (RAC) warned that if the reaction time of the drivers is so reduced, they can be in a fatal accident. Continue reading
