    • Could you make a video about the idea of the sound that old instruments do and why some people buy a 1950 guitar or burry drums cymbals, things like that. I truly don't know if my examples fit in the same line of thought. But thanks anyway for the attention

    • Hello Adam, I’m hearing a lot these times talking about « partimento » « solfeggio »especially by authors like Gjerdingen, Sanguinetti. What do you think about all of that ? And should classical musicians gave up their new theoretical trainings to come back to old partimento tradition ?

  • I'm a very mediocre musician, but sometimes the only way i can really understand a time signature of a song or what goes where is through audiation. When I have to create the sounds in my head and place them somewhere in the song is when I finally understand what I was getting wrong in the first place!

  • Wow. Love the video! About audiation: I can do that often so easy. Then often I get songs stuck in my head without having listened to it recently. I just thought about it. And this also brings up lirics I didn't know I knew. This often happens when I hear similar songs. Bow I know that this is audiation. Thanks for someone understanding it!

  • I have noticed my mind's ear has trouble with repeated sections, like vamps, or when a phrase finishes out in the meter with "filler". I think my brain knows what is filler and literally doesn't store it. Very interesting!

  • What you mean, "try" imagining a song in your mind!? I can't turn the music in my head off... While my mind's _eye_ is at or below average; my mind's ear is constantly on. Unless I'm actively listening to something in the real world or actively thinking about something non-musical, there is usually something playing in my mind, music I know well, music I'm not sure if I've heard before or if it's something my mind makes up, and things I've definitely made myself. I can usually image at least 3 instruments at once like lead guitar/keyboard bass and drums, and when I remember music I know it's almost everything except lyrics (i can never really hear lyrics when hearing music). It's not just an annoying "earworm" as it's what I'm used to and it only gets annoying when my mind gets stuck on one genre for too long, such as the one time my mind kept playing Viennese New year's concert type of music mixed with upbeat military marches for about a week. I can usually just decide to listen to another album though. And if I'm too busy working (I'm a programmer) to coerce my mind into playing something new, I can always stop it by listening to Spotify.

  • Wait.... Hearing you describe "audiation"...You mean that's not something that everyone just does all the time naturally? I'm serious. I listen to full albums all the time in my head. That's how I got through school, when I was done with tests and things to prevent boredom. I didn't realize that was a thing that people don't... Normally do? I guess I don't typically get visuals in my brain unless I'm particularly deep asleep and dreaming, but I've always also been a deeply aural learner.

  • Speaking of mistakes and being able to handle them, here's one of my favourites by Øystein Sunde: at around 7 minutes he discovers that he's singing the wrong refrain, which then the person next to him (Halvdan Sivertsen) teasingly points out, but then Sunde just breaks into a brilliant solo and has a laugh at himself before carrying on after a bit more banter with Sivertsen

  • The whole "singing while improvising/playing" is because understanding musical intervals and textures with your body is more inmediate than playing an external musical instrument, thus helps you be more expressive.

I hope you keep doing this and enjoying it, it's great stuff.

  • I have aphantasia. I didn't know that people actually saw images in their mind until about a year ago. I have no issues with memory. The best way I can describe it is instead of seeing an image I have a description in my mind. Not that I see or hear words, but when I think about how something looks its almost that it feeds a technical description like someone was telling you what something you've never seen looks like.

  • Question for your next Q+A : You've made a video about "irrational time signatures", saying that in music "irrational" means "not a power of two". In math "irrational" means you can't make a ratio off of a number, meaning you can not split it in a numerator and a denominator. So does it make any sense in music ? I wonder how sqrt(2) time signature sounds like... Hope it was clear

  • I never knew that exists a word for it "audiation". I use it whenever i have to sing a song and i try to imagine the tempo of the song by "imagining" that song playing in my head before I actually starts to play it. Or whenever im creating a new setlist to play live... So i can come up with the right energy between one song to the other.

  • On the topic of audiation: Is 'having a song in your head' something like involuntary audiation? I tend to audiate involuntarily a lot, can be really REALLY annoying when I've got the same song in my head for days, sometimes even weeks on end. Any tips on dealing with involuntary audiation?

  • I used audiation when I was in school. I'd always study to the same music (an hour long metalcore mix) then before exams I'd just listen to that music non stop, and keeping it playing in my head during the exam. Definitely helped with exam stress and memory recall.

  • Is Instagram always the place to ask a question? I want to know what that spacey feeling arpeggiated stuff that sounds like the quintessential 80s is. You know, it's stereotypically a synth but also how the end of Eruption feels, or when Clancy's getting shot through space in The Midnight Gospel, etc. What's that called? What gives it that unique feeling? What does it take to make that work and how do I use it? Bit frustrating that I don't even know enough music theory to know what ask Google to learn for myself.

  • Hi Adam, long time watcher, but fairly recently starting musician here. I've been practicing guitar recently, and I remember hearing from somewhere (A Rob Scallon video probably) that the nature of a guitar is that its always slightly out of tune. I was wondering if this makes it weird for people who have perfect pitch, to listen to guitar?

  • That audiation bit was indeed an interesting topic! I wonder if people who can audiate really easily are also more prone to having songs stuck in their head. Data point of one, but it happens to me aaaaall the time, and sometimes multiple songs at once.

  • Another thing worth noting about keeping your wide intervals low is that pitch is logarithmic with respect to frequency. 'Beating' artefacts however, like those you may use to tune your bass/guitar if you haven't got access to a tuner, are linear with respect to frequency. A tight interval where both elements are clearly perceptible when played up top may become a beating, clashy mess if played low because the two fundamentals and their overtones are now bunched up much closer together in terms of linear frequency. Linear effects like beating and tone fusion become less likely to occur the higher you play.

  • Hello Adam I've been listening to a lot of jazz reharmonisations and I've noticed that the most effective ones manage to introduce a lot of really obvious chromaticism while still managing to feel diatonic. How is this achieved? Whenever I try to reharmonise music, my chromaticism just feels very disjointed and out of key even when applying the usual reharmonisation concepts.
