The brain then attaches emotions to this. From a study done at the University of Washington:

Brains of deaf people rewire to ‘hear’ music | UW Today

My absolute favourite example of deafness and music perception and composition is Beethoven. A lot of his later works make extensive use of lower frequency notes (heavy bass), and now we understand that he did this because he could "feel" those notes better than pitches of a higher frequency. Beethoven, after his hearing was completely gone, had chopped the legs off his piano so that he could compose music whilst laying on the floor to feel the notes, because he couldn't hear them. Symphonies 8 and 9 were composed in this fashion. Beethoven worked on the 9th Symphony for 7 years, from 1817 until 1824, due to his complete deafness. He also worked on choral parts for this symphony (like the Ode to Joy chorus).

Symphony 8



Symphony 9, Movement 4 (you probably already know this one but here it is). You'll notice heavier bass in this piece.



The unfortunate part is that Beethoven did not get to hear his own compositions. He had no idea what they sounded like, if they were great or disastrous. He only saw the music on paper.
Yes, but composers back then had the ability to hear the music as the read it--a skill that is diminishing. Look at Joplin, he would ride trains through the countryside and write that way--never at the piano. Mozart supposedly did not write at the piano or harpsichord either. Gershwin wrote "Rhapsody in Blue" while riding on a train and incorporated the rhythm of the train passing over the tracks into the piece. Beethoven, despite being deaf, could probably hear the music in his head as he wrote it.

I didn't say that he couldn't, but being able to hear the pitches in your head is not the same as hearing them from the instrument.

top 10 things that would piss me off on a daily basis if I had a child:

10. Their booger-encrusted face.
09. Their endless amounts of dribbling slobber.
08. Trying to dress them with their spastic limbs.
07. Feeding their ridiculously uncoordinated mouth.
06. Vomit. Anywhere. Anytime.
05. Piss/shit on everything. Their general disgusting child-stench.
04. The fact that I would never sleep again, probably.
03. The excess flab on my body from that ungrateful little troll.
02. The noises it would make. All of them.
01. Elmo. He isn't even a real Muppet. He's an "anything Muppet".

It was a term used by Jim Henson's workshop to describe a Muppet that was essentially interchangeable, blank in appearance and easy to dress into any character for any scene, meant to be used in "crowds" of Muppets. Essentially they were meant to be nobodies. Which is exactly what Elmo was and suddenly he has a name and he's just the greatest thing ever. WTF.

Interesting. I guess that makes more of an underdog character though, not part of the Muppet royalty.

Exactly. Certain Muppets are deserving of Muppet royalty status.

Elmo is not. He ranks up there with that annoying rabbit from A Muppet Christmas Carol (I think that's the right one?).
