Flying Athiest The  'How Sign Language Innovators are bringing music to the Deaf " is interesting.

I have a rare hearing problem so appreciate inovations to bring hearing to the deaf.

As far back as the 1970's there was something called a bone phone.  The bone phone was a vibration 'speaker' system that rested around the neck where the 'speakers' vibrated the collar bone. It waas a great idea.  I haven't heard much about that technology for a long time.

Chris, sometimes the music consists of the instrument, the musician, and even the hall he plays in.  Give a listen to this live performance of Ralph Towner playing his composition, "Spirit Lake:"

'Soupiness'  Randall, may be a good term such as the metronome synchonized clappping at the end of the performance, which could get me on another subject of oppressive regieme theory.

On contortions with muscians.

I heard that muscian's don't play the music - they are music.

Hearing the terrible clapping at the end of the Butterfly lovers - sounds so (Mao)  Communist Chinese to me.

Chris, your last video was interesting. The pianist also played the flute! Chinese music is certainly different from what the Western world listens to. Personnally, I'm not a fan. Too much "soupiness"--sliding into next notes. I lasted 4 minutes.

Three strings such as a Sanxian  contributes to beautiful music.

I like Robert Randolph's music, but have to close my eyes, 'cause I can't stand watching his contortions.

Synthesized Layed Down 'guitars' aren't really guitars - are they?

Original guitarists may call Les Paul amplified and synthesized string instruments something other than a guitar.

What's the difference between a Fiddle and a Violin?

I understand the only difference is the way it's played.

I saw Pat Metheny play a Pikasso 42-String guitar in concert.  The attached video  doesn't sound as good as he did live in concert.

My Uncle who is a retired  horn Jazz musician hates Pat Metheny.
