I've had sensations recently where I'm not aware of the music going "up and down", but instead hearing harmonic sounds. I got this feeling when I was doing beta testing on note boat in an early version. It was before Chris decided to delineate octaves visually. The best way I would descri...

What about metal objects? They all have an inherent pitch don't they? Maybe that could be a link. It would probably have to be standardized objects like coins, and the concept would then be formed of a quarter sound, a nickel sound, etc. To provide an anecdote: My janitor in high school was a coin j...

la-based minor solfege is interesting because of the way it 'connects' to the do-based scale, and the 2 are so often battling for dominance in a song, even co-existing sometimes. It would give each note 2 functions with the same name, emphasizing the duality. One problem with the 'do'-based minor......

NBC = D/B\G
T-MOBILE = CCCEC (with g under the first note)
