Binaural Beats

Posted 12 October 2008 - 04:47 PM

LMAO~

I just had those binaural beats on, and my bearded dragon started looking around really confused.

:lol:

The dog didn't seem phased though, lazy git.

I turned them off about 5 minutes ago, and he's still walking around looking dazed. New DIC experiment:
Anyone with pets, play some binaural beats to them. See how they react.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

You play pitches that are painfully close together, and you get what are called beats. In addition to the two pitches you play, there's a vibrato like modulation that occurs. It basically sounds like a wawa effect.

The musical term for this kinda thing is called dissonance.

It creates a pulsation that is annoying to most, and the frequencies let's say...don't agree with each other.

And anyone that does that do an animal should be shot. That's just cruel. :angry:

No, dissonance is actually a very good thing for music. It's what makes music so wonderful to listen to. Dissonance creates a tension, energy, excitement, etc that usually arrives at a musical closure, or cadence/resolution, signified by consonance.

Dissonance is amazing.

Well yes, but only when it's used correctly.

Joke?

For the record, I didn't actually turn them on for him, I had a headache and they get rid of it. He just started getting confused so I turned them off.

"Used correctly" has got to the most subjective aspect of art. There was a time when the tritone was considered so dissonant that it earned the nickname "Devil's Interval" and was banned from the church.

@gabe: Aren't bearded dragons venomous?

are you talking about like 2 instruments being out of tune? cuz that makes me cringe, or are you talking tritone/devils interval/demented 6th interval?
