The deaf experience of electronic music

A Sonic Pulse

I remember watching a documentary over 15 years ago about
deaf people, and at one point there was a gathering, some
sort of sonic therapy, and the music was a version of Uviol
by Autechre.

i wonder if there were any deaf people present when digital
mystikz played on the iration steppas rig in leeds? that was
as much of a physical experience as sonic. earplugs were
free on the door and you really could "meditate on bass
weight" as the slogan went. plaster was coming down from the
ceiling and all sorts, left you breathless

is there anything that heavy bass does to your lungs?
it does feel weird at times.
love the feeling though when every (leftover) hair on your
body
vibrates. is there a sex toy that picks up and amplifies
resonance?

not sure what the biology of bass and the lungs is, but as a
smoker i know that it did free up a lot of gross grey
phlegm, gave my chest a proper clearout

it does feel like it pounds some off off there
i remember from kung fu training, that continuoueoues
punches
to the chest give the lungs some work to do too (not in a
healthy fashion though)

I was at a Jan Jelinek show in an old iron foundry with huge
concrete ceilings and the bass was so loud and low the whole
place was vibrating and I feared for my life for two
reasons: 1) probable ceiling collapse and 2) my aorta was
vibrating like a detuned low E bass string.

bass is dramatic but it's actually the mid-range they ban
you from for health reasons I hear

have you ever been to a live show so loud it stopped
sounding like music? happened to me at orbital's 2001 show
at manchester apollo. if you held your nose and blew to pop
yr ears you could hear the detail agaib for a little while
but it turned to painful noise quite soon after. must've
been against health n safety laws (if they had been passed
yet?) and it kinda tarnished the experience. i don't regret
going but it left me with on and off tinnitus, irritating at
times

resonate, well it felt like it

if i sing for a while, get thoroughly warmed up, holding
notes resonates different parts of me and i actually find
this quite useful for holding the note steady. the feeling
instead of the sound

i once put some transducers under wooden plates and hosted a
workshop for hearing impaired children

they all sat on those plates and i played them avril 14th.
that i pitched down to make the plates vibrate heavily to
the music

they loved it

pretty simple installation. i used max to play with the
sound spectrum to get the best vibration. i remember that my
amplifier overheated a few times and those transducers got
cooking hot

these are the ones i used

i was here in 2003 when aphex twin,
merzbow/haswell and white house played. merzbow//haswell was
mostly a physical experience. the speakers were huge.

im so happy that i was a good boy that day and put earplugs
in. the last afx concert i didn't.. and it bothered me
afterwards. as my ears get older, i get more frightened. i
definitely have some tinnitus going, luckily i have so much
to do these days that i don't have the time to concentrate
on it

i remember going to a dubstep party and my nose vibrated
from the bass. very weird

That's so cool!!! I wanted to do a project with with very
fine haptic feedback style interaction using pinhead sized
prodders on sensitive areas like palms for some frequencies
combined with low end vibration of the guts but it was too
complicated and I never found anyone to help me.

Was reading a completely unrelated book (about ghosts) then
this paragraph came up which reminded me of this thread.

"During a piano concert at Liverpool's Metropolitan
University in September 2002, infrasound pulses were sent
out at certain points - unbeknown to the concert-goers.
Asked to complete questionnaire on leaving, people reported
a variety of effects, including tingles on the back of the
neck, 'strange feelings in the stomach' and heightened
emotions. Being exposed to a sound wave of 19 hertz can
create a kind of ripple in the eye, which in turn will give
the anomalous impression of movement on one's peripheral
vision. In short, a low hum makes you feel uneasy and think
you see things moving that aren't in fact there."

yeah I think thats where a lot of reports of ghosts come
from, stuff like that, local temperature changes and
magnetic fields

Yeah definitely, in the case I was reading about the
hauntings were always preceeded by silverware and stuff
vibrating in the draws, implying a huge low frequency sound
wave, only problem was it was the 1750s.

yeah, suppose it could have been a steam train in the
distance or mining or a number of things, I guess we will
never really know the answer, but I bet it something boring
prosaic,

my bedroom door opened the other day like someone was
messing round with the handle before it opened with freaked
me out, I was half asleep but it was very weird

sounds cool. i once had the idea to do something similar for
a vr suit

to have a glove with lots of little cells that can blow up
with air pneumatically. in order to be able to feel virtual
objects

i heard a few weeks ago, that somebody is actually working
on this
