Favorite SOUND?

Almost nothing makes me smile more than hearing a baby laugh really hard!   Here's a good one:

Do you have a favorite sound?  What is it?
thanks!  OH, and please read about my friend ERMA below, you'll really like her!

The sound of rain.

The hum of voices and activity in a cafe in the early morning.

Campanile bells

Comforting sounds, cheerful sounds.

I'm not sure I have one. I'm much more visually oriented.

I have always thought the sound of a good heavy thunderstorm at night was cool

The sound of raw overpowering horsepower, the kind that makes your insides rattle!

Z;

In my lost post of yesterday, I was telling that the pure sounds and specially the live sounds are very useful to trim the BIOLOGICAL CLOCK of the BRAIN.

In addition, I gave the examples of sounds, the Baby sounds and small kids speaking, and the children’s noisy playing in the nature, not in the closed rooms, ECHO can tire.

If you listen to the MUSIC on CD or as beamish calls the vinyl, better to listen by the HEADPHONES (not every HEADPHONE), the one that I recommend is the SENNHEIZER HD 25-1 70 OHM, this is a German product but, you can find it there.

The other types, not good, CHINESE electronic GARBAGES, never use, they are not good for your health.

The Music is relaxing.

Go to opera, this is the best.

or, your American Country MUSIC on live with acoustic GUITARS in the WOODEN BARS, is also GGOD (Without too much DRINKS), with a CUP of SHIRAZ or Saint Emilion RED VINE (not more) is even good to dissolve the KOLESTROLS, and specially if one have a good partner of dance, DANCING and rhythm the body with the music is healthy and relaxing.

RELAXATION is the base of BIEN-ETRE (to feel good in his corp.).

For the HOUSE of the RISING SOUND, a very good recording of JOHNNY DEPP is a good example.

Piano, on live, Ballade SOLITAIRE, Marche Funebre de CHOPIN, with a Great Pianist.

If you can hear the five cords under the HAMER of one key separately, you will be cured in 2 hours (I did it for a great pianist of 73 years old who was deaf from 30 years ago).

To be in a good health: the KEYWORD is the RELAXATION, which means (scientifically) a very well tuned Brain Clock.

I can write the pages on the experiences, and the witnesses, if you are interested.

However, let me to add that, what you read now is the more advanced research and experiment results brought to the feeling of the public.

The Theory of this method, I can explain it more easily, because I have done it, but I think that it will be out of topic.

hi Z..ahhh waves!

Sounds of the ocean, we can hear the waves at our house and nothing sounds better to me. It's better then any sleeping pill.

Rain at night (not during the day).

Birds chirping early in the morning.

Ticker said...

Listening to the quiet.

Z said...

Yes, I was thinking this morning about this post before I came to the computer and RAIN is definitely one of my favorite sounds, too.

Ducky, you must still have some sound you like?

Soapster......On Golden Pond? ;-)

Scotty, I went to the Long Beach Grand Prix YEARS ago and that sound when they all took off was UNBELIEVABLY COOL!! It really does make your insides rattle...definitely.

On that subject, when we lived in Paris, we went to a location where we could see the Eiffel Tower and the fireworks on Bastille Day and suddenly the fireworks started and I got really intense sensations in my chest. We were standing there stuck within a big crowd and I thought "Oh, my gosh, I'm going to die here in Paris!" I mentioned to Mr. Z "My chest feels weird!" and he said "Everybody's does..it's the sound waves!" WHO KNEW? Boy, was I relieved! :-)

Z said...

SAM, you say "If you can hear the five cords under the HAMER of one key separately, you will be cured in 2 hours (I did it for a great pianist of 73 years old who was deaf from 30 years ago).

To be in a good health: the KEYWORD is the RELAXATION, which means (scientifically) a very well tuned Brain Clock."

So, to hear ONE note and IMAGINE the other notes in a chord, that is what is healthy? Musicians know what other tones are heard but how do people who don't know what a C Chord is, for example?

And, I ask again; can this be taught to someone? I'm not quite sure WHAT you did with that deaf pianist?

Relaxation is the key? I should have been dead 10 years ago :-)

Z said...

The OCEAN is a great sound, isn't it.

I once had a couple of friends who said they went to stay at a hotel in Ventura, on the beach, and they had to have their room moved to the mountain side because the ocean kept them awake. I remember Mr Z and I just looked at each other like "WHAAAAT?" geeeZ

Ticker, How I would love to listen to complete silence again! You obviously don't have tinnitus.

Rain on the rooftop
Sea sounds at a sunny beach
City sounds at night

The drip of water
From all the soggy branches
In the piney woods

A kitten's purring
During an afternoon nap
On a shady porch

The breeze in the trees
The rustle of autumn leaves
The sound of silence

Z;

I suggest a very simple test;

you take an smal silver tea spoone, and a CRYSTAL CUP (bigger the CUP = better result).

Suspend your Crystal CUP by a short cord, and strike your spoon on the edge of your CRYSTAL, what you hear is your brain alignement state.
If you hear a single tone, it's not good,
BUT, if you hear a sound which lasts, or a sound with side vibrations which is called the Harmonics, this is FANTASTIC.

the Musicians feel and hear these tones.

You are right, by training, we can bring someone to hear these tones.

This is the spirit of the Brain RELAXATION,

In your example, why the baby is so happy, why is he so relaxed, he is so trimmed that he hears the sound of his Father with all it's HARMONICS.

Your BABY is a wonderful example of a healthy relaxed trimmed BRAIN,

Your Baby's laughing is the prove of concept of my théory, This Baby do not need my equipment.

For the others, My module provides all those decorolated sounds.

Your Questions make me to answer, and the it will become more clear for you.

I don't know what to explain and what you don't need to be explained, your questions will tell me where should I explain.

I forgot to tell you; ACOUPHENE = tinnitus.

What a simple thing to be resolved.

SAM...you say "I forgot to tell you; ACOUPHENE = tinnitus.

Not in America, believe me :-)
HELP!

I am going to try that silver spoon and crystal test...will let you know how I do...if I can hear through the ACOUPHENE!

cube said...

I love the sound of the ocean.

cube said...

Also, rain when I don't have anywhere to go and my family is safely at home.

beamish said...

I'm with Z on the laughing babies thing.

Being more rhythym oriented, I could go on and on about percussion instrumentation...

Jen said...

For the pleasure of the sound in my ears:
the wind through tall pine trees (I hear it so rarely)

a symphony orchestra (live)

car wheels moving slowly over loose gravel



For the feelings I experience when I hear the sound:

a coyote howling

a campfire crackling

my babes talking/singing to themselves when they're alone and don't know I'm listening

my dishwasher / washing machine / dryer all going at once while I sit down and close my eyes

Z said...

Beamish....sometimes you touch me.

Jen, what a good list...so evocative and so touching, too.

I used to love to hear the key turn in the lock when Mr Z was coming in.

babies laughing
rain
ocean
music that takes me back
my mother saying "Hi, HONEY!" when I call her.
an old blade lawn mower
harmony when I'm singing with others...brought goosebumps this last Sunday and frequently does
the sound of my plane landing!

Z said...

How weird...I finished my last comment and my mother called :-)

Jen said...

Z, I love a reel-to-reel lawn mower!
I told my husband that I wanted one because it would save us money on gas...truth was I wanted it for the nostalgia, the exercise, and the simplicity of it.

He laughed and said I could have one, but the 2 acres would take me two weeks to mow. ;-)

I love your list, and it's been good to reflect on the sounds that bring me pleasure.

Steve Harkonnen said...

The baby laughing sounds fine at first, but it would eventually rake my nerves.

My favorite sound is when I have excellent tone on my bass guitar and amplification, especially when others come up to me and say stuff like "man, that bass of yours sounds awesome."

Anonymous said...

"my babes talking/singing to themselves when they're alone and don't know I'm listening"

Jen, me too. I remember standing outside the room and listening to the cooing sounds of my babies. How sweet that sound.

A gentle rain while i'm inside all cozy and warm.
The same with the wind blowing.

Our dog greeting us at the door with a howl when we come home. A happy sound.

My family's laughter.

Piano, well played. My favorite, Chopin.

Now that the weather is almost warming up, I can enjoy my personal getaway place by the Mississippi River where I like to sit and read and / or meditate. The sound of wind through the trees and water flowing by and barges passing is very calming.

Z;

I had forgotten that Acouphene is used in French,

Tinnitus is an ALARM;

This Alarm says you that the brain clock is completely out of tune, like a Guitar or Piano, which is out of tune;

Look what says Steve.

In addition, Jen, the sound of the wind on the tall trees, and if she hears the sound of the leafs which are rubbed to each other, and the sound of the kids when they talk to each other freely.

This is the tuning and aligning the BRAIN regularly.

However, this level of SHARPNESS is out of touch of all people,



In addition, this is what my research brings to all.

My recommendation to all these nice people is, to continue their training by listening every day, the day they hear those tiny sounds separated from other sounds clearly, that day, they will not catch cold, they will not have MIGRAINE, no Parkinson, no Alzheimer, no cancer.

Tinnitus arrives for the people when they have either an accident, or a surgery, or a heavy emotional strike.

In addition, it can be cured very easily.

You know, our head is like a huge computer.

Our head is in charge of all our Vital Organs

Each Organ sends permanently the signals to the central unit (Brain), the Central unit (Brain) sends the answer back and different signals to that organ, for example, your brain says to your head to have pain because you have had the heavy weight stock your head


I will continue.

Z said...

SAM, I've been told there is no cure for tinnitus.

Beamish, I wish I could sit with you and talk and hear those marvelous calming sounds...

Anonymous said...

I continue;

However, if you do not have an accident, if something had not stroke you head, why hour head have pain?

To have pain, is a pain signal (order) sent by your brain to the organ.

In addition, the brain is responsible for the BIEN-ETRE of your body.

The Programmer (Universal Mind) had fulfilled all the softwares in our memory, and had installed all the applications in our brain.

When you are sleeping, your breathing, your temperature, your heart beatings and all your vital functions is controlled and adjusted by your BRAIN.

The remedy and all kind of medicines are manufactured in your own body's Laboratory under the order and supervision of your brain.

The Brain is the hand of the MASTER (Universal Mind) in your body, but the Master had left the control to yourself.

When the Brain is wrongly informed, it will send the wrong signal.

Z said...

SAM, I'm very interested, thank you for continuing.

What do you mean by this? "If you can hear the five cords under the HAMER of one key separately"

I presume you mean HAMMER or "One hit on a piano key", for example, is that right? And "Five CORDS?"

What do you mean with FIVE CORDS? You mean CHORD as we spell it in English, right? A group of notes played at one time...is that what you're referring to?
How does someone with no musical experience hear an E and know the five tones that make a chord around it, for example?

Anonymous said...

But the Brain is never informed wrongly;
If your Computer clock is out of tune (running very fast) it will stop to work correctly, we have a phase looped lock to control the computer clock stability.

The computer of the human brain is different,
The central unit needs a timing clock or a temporal clock,
When this timing clock is not tuned (the steps), the information received to the brain will not be recognized correctly and will not be treated correctly, so the wrong signals will be sent to the organs, and if the clock is displaced in the time domains very much, you will have tinnitus, and migraines,

In medicine, when they have no answer, they say that there is no cure.
The tinnitus is curable in a few hours, less than 10 hours for the most ill,

Now, the Big Question is, how can we re-tune the displaced brain clock?

In electronics, each 6 months we send the test equipments of the LAB to the company to retune, or re-align them.

For Ex: for a FREQUENCY COUNTER, or an Spectrum Analyzer, what we do, we send them several very precise tones, and we re-align them with those precise signals.
If we do not re-align our test equipments, all the measurements that we do, will be false, and the result of the whole project will be failed.

Like the test equipments, the brain clock needs to be retuned and re-aligned.
The separate sounds are the precise test tones that can stimulate the brain and retune the brain’s clock.

To be able to continue, I need the feedback of your understanding, the musicians can understand and discuss this part better, or the scientists.

About the Hammer and the cord
Under each key in piano there is a hammer which stroke on the cords ( Piano Cord, Guitar cord)

In some good pianos we have 5 cords under each key.

Each problem or decease is recognized by the brain by it’s own pre-registered tone (the MASTER had loaded those codes and details in our BRAIN).

If the brain clock is out of tune, how do you want the brain cures a decease that is not correctly recognized.
Cancers, and the lack of the immunity of our vital system is an example.
AIDES, and all kind of VIRAL deceases are another examples.

Loosing the memory and loosing the function of the organs, is another example of non recognition of the received tones by the bad tuned brain.

THE CREATOR HAD OFFERED US THE SOLUTION OF ALL KINDS OF deceases.

We can live even several hundreds of years if we wake-up from our ignorance.

If we do not feel the tremendous gift that the creator had offered us, how do we deserve to be his believers.

If you offer the most valuable, the most expensive gift to your loved person, and you see his feedback of indifference, how do you feel?

To be able to claim that I am his believer, first, I should feel his divine gifts, appreciate, and thank it at each breath, AND USE IT AT It’s BEST.

This is my religion, the religion of submission; submission to whom that had permitted me to drink some drops of his cup of wine (science).

Z said...

SAM, thank you for all this information...
Yes, I am a musician, not a scientist, though I do understand what you're saying...I think!

I knew that's what you meant, the HAMMER...yes, the felt hammer that hits the strings WHEN you PLAY A CHORD...that's what confused me...CORDS is correct, now I see how you used the word...we call them piano STRINGS :-)
Just a problem with our language differences! !

so, now that you know I'm more the musician type, what do I do to help with the tinnitus>?!!!

Anonymous said...

Z;
I should talk to you,

I'm going to fix my SKYPE, and we can talk through skype if you mind.

To write the pages is not my strong point.

The doctors ask me to write down,

You forced me to write, I prefer to die and not to write.

Because I think FASTER than I write, and I can not write the whole things that I want.

SAM

Z said...

SAM, I don't blame you!! Not at all! It's SO difficult to continue to write in another language and you really do it so well but it is frustrating and very time consuming, isn't it.
I will be happy to Skype...Mine is not working but my stepson's is and we can set up a time and day, okay?
I'll look forward to that. Odd that I feel rather hopeful about your being able to help me!
Thank you for the hope, at least.

I love what you wrote about GOd, by the way..."If we do not feel the tremendous gift that the creator had offered us, how do we deserve to be his believers.

If you offer the most valuable, the most expensive gift to your loved person, and you see his feedback of indifference, how do you feel?

Amen.
