Now this is really getting off topic I guess, but with all the talk here
about ears & perception of sound I'd like to ask the following of you
do you hear a sound in your head?
I've gotten some very interesting answers to this question, usually from
musicians and artists. To be clear, I don't mean tinnitus or any similar
malady. I believe that John Cage called it the sound of the nervous system
working. Different people's perception/non-perception of the phenomenon is
quite varied and curious.
I may have asked this question before on this list, can't remember; if so,
please excuse the redundancy. Deja vu is also a very interesting
phenomenon (though a bit of a stretch for the Looper's list, eh?).
