Haydn Joseph. Symphony No. 92, Oxford

July 1791 – the date and time of the event were precisely agreed upon in advance. But it so happened that Franz Joseph Haydn, the legislator of the Vienna Classical School, was late. After all, today’s the train from London Station to Oxford takes about 60 minutes. And in the days of Haydn, such a journey required many times more time, effort, and obligatory contacts with the local population. At the same time, the composer could not speak the English in their language. I had to change the program on the go.

With the maestro, who had been in England for more than half a year and spent a successful concert season there, it was agreed that he should give three free concerts, performing a completely new, unfamiliar Oxford score. For this role the G-major symphony, which was written three or four years ago for one Parisian graph, came up, who, by the way, did not pay for the order. Continue reading

In healthy skin – healthy hearing

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

At the limit of hearing

The French otolaryngologist, Alfred Tomatis, was the first to systematically investigate the effect on the human psyche of high-frequency sounds.

According to his theory, a child, floating in an amniotic fluid during fetal development, hears a lot of sounds that become unavailable to him after birth – the mother’s breath, the beating of her heart, voice, the noise from the work of internal organs, etc.

This is due to the fact that during the period of intrauterine development, the child’s ears are filled with a fluid that conducts sound much better than air; in particular, high-frequency damping is much less Continue reading
