This blog has been mostly focusing on the musically amusing videos that I find during my YouTube harvests and excavations.
Is music humanity’s drug of choice? What is the mysterious power behind it’s ability to captivate, stimulate and keep us coming back for more? Find out the scientific explanation of how a simple mixture of sound frequencies can affect your brain and body, and why it’s not all that different than a drug like cocaine.

Japanese scientists levitate objects by soundwaves coming out of ultrasonic speakers!
“The essence of levitation technology is the countervailing of gravity. It is known that an ultrasound standing wave is capable of suspending small particles at its sound pressure nodes and, so far, this method has been used to levitate lightweight particles, small creatures, and water droplets.
The acoustic axis of the ultrasound beam in these previous studies was parallel to the gravitational force, and the levitated objects were manipulated along the fixed axis (i.e. one-dimensionally) by controlling the phases or frequencies of bolted Langevin-type transducers. In the present study, we considered extended acoustic manipulation whereby millimetre-sized particles were levitated and moved three-dimensionally by localised ultrasonic standing waves, which were generated by ultrasonic phased arrays. Our manipulation system has two original features. One is the direction of the ultrasound beam, which is arbitrary because the force acting toward its centre is also utilised. The other is the manipulation principle by which a localised standing wave is generated at an arbitrary position and moved three-dimensionally by opposed and ultrasonic phased arrays. We experimentally confirmed that various materials could be manipulated by our proposed method.”
This artist categorizes his music as Experimental Soul.
“Tigger Da Author drops his 2nd official video from his debut EP “Evilution”. The eclectic sound of “Gone” is a simplistic mastermind production of a double bass, clicks and static from the start, with profound lyrics that eclipse into a symphonic end.”
Check out this cover of a Radiohead classic done with a middle-eastern flavor, adding a cello and a oud!
awesome music though! Enjoy …
Thom Yorke and Nigel Godrich performing at Le Poisson Rouge .. simply amazing, true artists.
