Feel It?!?

Life is nothing but a reputedly plurisensorial experience, with us suffering from what is definitely considered a handicap whenever coming to lose one (or a few) of our senses for a reason or another. This seems though the case, speaking of so many domains, in today’s environment…

Audiology: Feel It?!?What a greater experience than being able to both see, hear, smell, feel what we’re doin’ from an instant to another, with so much troubles occurring as soon as we lose one of our senses!!! Of course, hearing is quintessential as far as listening to music is concerned, but is it enough??? This is nevertheless the situation we’re left in with the ongoing process of dematerialization of the object and its replacement by digital formats. In other words, most likely the mp3 in regards to music, with the latter per definition not associated anymore – unlike the vinyls and the CD’s to a lesser extend – to any form of visual such as artwork and the credits that come with.
This  no doubt may appear at times as a problem for the nowadays DJ’s only left with lists of files they would grab from their devices, with no other indication left but the titles of them. But also, and on a longer run – unless the situation has been created on purpose – for each of us on our will if not need to create our proper data bases and therefore acquire a better understanding as to where the music we’re listening to is coming from…

Of course, and don’t get me wrong, the incredible evolution of technology has allowed us to do things that were thought impossible to achieve not so long ago, although an mp3 file will never surpass the feeling provided by a vinyl, from the moment we used to talk and therefore socialize with a record seller or a connoisseur, to the fact of holding it, looking at its sleeve and checking the credits (to be considered as the equivalent to nowadays tags), and playing it while taking advantage of the huge superiority it offers in terms of sound spectrum and its inherent warmth. And even more at the end considering the fact that they’re meant  to apply to different environment, with computerized devices for the first, and real audio ones for the second…

When comin’ to listen to music, I can’t help myself associating it to images and therefore using the potential of my own senses. Same  whenever reading a book or enjoying a meal with its specialties suggesting landscapes. I couldn’t get into a glass of wine without smelling its bouquet and eventually think as to where it’s coming from, how it has been assembled and who’s done it. As many things relative the power of transportation which is exactly what makes certain experiences so unique, don’t you think???
