Favorite Artists At The Moment:

Everything Maynard has done... Tool, Perfect Circle, Puscifier

Also trying to get hooked on Manchester Orchestra again because he is real Rock N Roll to me these days. There are many personal favorites old and new, but those two would be my choice for recent music. Reggae has always crept in between, tribal seeds, slightly stoopid, etc.

Personally record all types of music for myself, trance rock to folk, love all styles.

If I had to pick only one band. Definitely, Tool...

But, I grew up on metallica, pink floyd, the doors, all the classics. Dig those guys and styles.

I'm into No Doubt's new stuff, Radiohead, Sigur ros, Citizen Cope, the list really goes on and varies... Eclectic you could say...

Maybe this gives you an idea of my style or musical personality, thanks for asking!

A belated welcome, Osprey!

I love Tool's "Right in Two," a song I would never have heard if I hadn't joined MusicBanter. I feel this forum, at its best, broadens people's music horizons and inspires them to enjoy music more as we banter about it. I hope you'll have fun here sharing about the music you enjoy. You never know when something you write or a song you mention will be helpful or meaningful to someone else.

Because you are interested in new musicians for your work, I thought you might like my thread (link below) about good songs by non-famous bands. Maybe it will give you some more ideas for band interviews to do.

http://www.musicbanter.com/general-m...ml#post1111336

Some of my favorite songs by (currently) non-famous bands are these:

Kirsten Amy - "Unbelievable"


Unbelievable by Kirsten Amy - YouTube


The Thrill Collective - "Ink"


Ink - YouTube


Port Manteau - "All Too Familiar"


Port Manteau - All Too Familiar - YouTube

"Right In Two" is an excellent song, I'm also into Binaural Beats and Meditation music, create, listen, and love it.

The idea behind binaural beats is very interesting!

I've known about and heard acoustic beats (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beat_(acoustics)) that one experiences when two instruments are slightly out of tune and the sound frequencies interfere, but I'd never heard of "binaural beats" before:

"Binaural beats are heard when the right ear listens to a slightly different tone than the left ear. Here, the tones do not interfere physically, but are summed by the brain in the olivary nucleus. This effect is related to the brain's ability to locate sounds in three dimensions." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beat_(acoustics)

Intentionally using binaural beats as part of a song is a very creative idea and apparently an old one, since it sounds like ancient chants sometimes used them, perhaps? My brief reading about "binaural beats" on Wikipedia tells me that a whole mythology of binaural beats has arisen in which people claim the beats have different effects on the brain and physiology, such as promoting healing, relationships, etc.

I listened to this YouTube video below to experience binaural beats. When I put on my earphones and then pull one away so that I'm listening only through one ear, I can tell that the note coming through one earbud is constant and slightly flatter than the note coming through the other. Yet when I listen to both notes simultaneously, I *do* hear the beats that my brain creates even though they don't exist in the sensory input. Cool!

I learned something tonight. Thank you, Osprey.
