That seems to me to be all that a wav file is, just converted over to piano keys at a reduced "bitrate". If you reduce the samples per second on sound files, it would have a similar effect.

Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.

Check this out:



Association areas, possibly?
That used to work on me, but not anymore. Now it just looks like his mouth is moving wrong when he does the 'fa' motion.

I have virtually no interest in music at all, it was never part of my childhood and I never got to be attracted to it as I grew. I own, naybe, 6 CDs and played one of them last about five years ago. If a music programme comes on the radio I tune to a talk orog ir turn it off.

But it is impossible to totally shut out music in this media driven world so, despite myself, I can recognise lots of vlassical and modern tunes and even remember some words to some popular songs. So yes, if I hear a rhythm that my brain recognises, even if only partially, it will try to fill the gaps. I may even remember the title if I think about it.

But it may be more due to a "subliminal" effect, the unconscious absorption and memory of a "passing" experience whilst my conscious mind is occupied with something totally different.

Music is great, I love it. :grin:

I'm just a student of the game that they taught me.

xSP - great "Connectome" video. Interesting stuff...

As for the music auditory illusion, I wonder if you'd hear words if you didn't know the original song. Or if the song was in another language (like Italian).

... and from a movie/commercial viewpoint, music can definitely alter attention. I think it can make some subjects and concepts easier to learn and remember. It may make the brain more receptive to advertising... MIND CONTROL!!!

My favorite music for a commercial product was "By Mennen!"
Simple, memorable, earworm.

Mennen speed sticks still work. I buy them at the dollar store for....you guessed it, one dollar.  I can buy the same ones at the drug store or grocery store for about five dollars.
