EDM Festivals 2024 — Digging Behind, Beneath Chicago’s ARC Music Festival — sudden, massive, powerful, yet corporately ‘unclaimed’ — authentic and organic, or another psyop?

Summary — This thing was developed and is put-on by individuals and groups seemingly unknown and comparatively hidden from the public .. focusing on a class of music revealed as easily, readily and often polluted with MKULTRA mechanisms of mind-control, social-engineering, subliminals perhaps in terms of rhythms and at least in terms of A440 scale … Read more

The Changing Picture of Nonlinearity in Musical Instruments

A natural starting point for the study of any physical system is linearisation–leading to great simplification is terms of analysis, and also, in the computer age, to design flexibility and algorithmic simplification in simulation. The acoustics of musical instruments is no exception. One question, then, is: how much of the behaviour of a given instrument … Read more

Auditory streaming and the building of timbre – Steven Pinker

Harmonies and Melodies, assigning source, deciding musicality, based on timbre. https://www.academia.edu/661171/Auditory_streaming_and_the_building_of_timbre   Auditory streaming, a concept explored in the field of psychology and neuroscience, refers to the brain’s ability to separate and organize complex auditory information into distinct perceptual streams or channels. This phenomenon allows us to perceive and make sense of the various components … Read more

The Discordant Eardrum – Chaotic and Superior above 3 kHz

Abstract   “At frequencies above 3 kHz, the tympanic membrane vibrates chaotically. By having many resonances, the eardrum can transmit the broadest possible bandwidth of sound with optimal sensitivity. In essence, the eardrum works best through discord. The eardrum’s success as an instrument of hearing can be directly explained through a combination of its shape, … Read more

Tubes vs Transistors – Perception of Loudness, Clarity, Distortion, Sound Quality

In general, with other variables held steady, as the power rating goes up dramatically (10x), the perception of loudness only doubles. 3,000 Watts sounds only “four-times louder” than 30 Watts. It seems unlikely, but measurements and anecdotal evidence have consistently shown it is generally true. People often ask, how does the Milbert BaM-235ab compare, in … Read more

Auditory Perception of Nonlinear Distortion

SOURCE   Auditory perception of nonlinear distortion is a fascinating area within psychoacoustics, the branch of psychology concerned with the scientific study of hearing. Nonlinear distortion occurs when an audio system (such as speakers, amplifiers, or headphones) introduces harmonics that were not present in the original signal, often as a result of the system being … Read more

When you zoom-in on an “empty” Horizon, see what actually appears — Personally-obtainable direct evidence powerfully opens minds; whilst, in fact, abiding prevalent requires tolerating the greatest number of most severe anomalies

Interesting that it is always “sea level” and never “sea curve”. https://www.bitchute.com/video/YH75MZoYtjWB/     Zooming in on the horizon refers to using a camera or visual observation to focus on distant objects or landscapes, particularly those located at or near the horizon line. This action can reveal details and features that may not be visible … Read more

Contribution of active hair-bundle motility to nonlinear amplification in the mammalian cochlea

Abstract   The cochlea’s high sensitivity stems from the active process of outer hair cells, which possess two force-generating mechanisms: active hair-bundle motility elicited by Ca2+ influx and somatic motility mediated by the voltage-sensitive protein prestin. Although interference with prestin has demonstrated a role for somatic motility in the active process, it remains unclear whether … Read more

Reactive loading and amplifier distortion

section 10 of article — Referring to the complex impedance of a loudspeaker, Vance Dickason states [2] that, “Phase angles in excess of 40° at low frequencies, and the same at frequencies about 1-2 kHz, can be considered as a somewhat difficult load for an amplifier to drive.” Also on p.129 of the same book … Read more
