Marconi Union Weightless

“Weightless” is a song by Marconi Union that was created in October of 2011. Not a lot is known about the artist or song other then a random article online that I had found.

The article says some studies were preformed on the piece and several others and it was found to reduce up to sixty five percent of the listeners anxiety. If you are interested in reading the article you can find it here.

Also take a moment to listen! It actually is incredibly beautiful.

Headstrong: Blast From The Past!

cb328d36ee4ca13081ab86c2542f6437-1000x1000x1“Headstrong” is the debut single by Trapt and the lead single from their 2002 self-titled debut album. It is a confrontational song about starting a fight. Honestly it is funny that I enjoy the song so much because that is exactly the reverse of my personality.

My senior year of high school is when the album was released. The moment I listened to the single and album, I absolutely fell in love with the sound.

Headstrong has been in various playlist since 2002. It is definitely awesome to hear a blast from the past still be in rotation.

Zephirah’s Adventure: Science Of Sound

According to Wikipedia, Psychoacoustics is the scientific study of sound perception and audiology. More specifically, it is the branch of science studying the psychological effects and responses associated with sound (including noise, speech and music).

I know that we as humans perceive music and sound differently depending on your mood, the time of your life, and a plethora of other variables. It makes me wonder how many sounds we are familiar with and sounds we can identify easily and know where they are coming from. Wired put out a video late last year with two sonic branding experts explaining the thinking behind some of the world’s most recognizable sounds.

I find this stuff to be fascinating. With so much wonders in the world we tend to forget the sounds that surround us have an affect on in some way. If you need more of a visual, I have linked an info-graphic that explains a the psychology of sound, it is definitively worth taking a look.

https://www.myihp.co.uk/the-psychology-of-sound/

My sudden interest in reading about the science of sound is due to the recent shift of musical choices that I have become acquainted with. I know everyone is different and has different taste in music; however, science and sound has always been in our life’s in some form or fashion. Even if we do not notice or acknowledge it.

Here is an example of some of the music I have been listening to recently:

Hopefully, I did not bore you with my nerdy fascination of science and sound. The next music post will be some newer stuff that I have put in my play list for raiding in Warcraft!

Let’s get weird!

Yes, boy’s and girls, lets get weird but not in the way your thinking. Ew, Dont even go there. I am talking about music, silly.

For the last two weeks I have had three songs in my head and each song is very different. The first being Hollywood Undead’s Medicine from their ‘Notes from the Underground’ album. The group has been described as a rock rap group and usually I do not go for a style like this. As far in left field in comparison to the the other two song as it is, it has a theme of some pretty harsh realities that can happen in someones life.

Take a listen to the song:

The second song is Hunter by Galantis. Swedish electronic group comprised of Christian Karlsson and Linus Eklöw. The song is from their album “The Aviary”.  It is also the seventh track that features uncredited lead vocals from Hannah Wilson. I know with in the last month or so I have been a lot of this style of music in a verity of ways. Honestly, this version of the song has me so excited. When the bass dropped so did my heart.

Listen to the song:

The third song has grabbed my attention pretty swiftly. “In The Name Of Love” by Martin Garrix & Bebe Rexha is a pop inspired electronic song that has sunk its fangs into me. The song is a future bass that consist of an awesome blend of piano, bass, and guitar that hold together the song in such a way that forces you to pay attention.

Listen to the song:

So, with all the songs presented to you at this point. What has strung these specific sets of songs together for me?

The short answer: My Character in D&D currently. (I will not spoil things here kids. Sorry!) The longer answer: Just how will Zahara approach a situation that is will be in front of her eventually? I feel like the answers lay within the music here somewhere. How exactly, I am not sure. It will just depend on the adventure that she is involved in.

If you enjoyed any of the music you listened to today, please support the artist. Do not be that guy that steals music from the internet. That is just the douche way about going about it.

Zephirah’s Adventure: When Music Moves You!

GalantisRecently, I have been listening to a lot of music that would be categorized under the electronic style. However, there is a song that has been in my head for days at this point and can not seem to get enough.

The song is Hunter by Galantis.

Recently, in the D&D campaign that I am currently playing in as a halfling wizard, I had a unsettling feeling that she would be other harmed or end up dead in the recent fight that she was in. If you want to know what happens, please feel free to listen to the podcast for the campaign. I am not going to be spoiling things here. (iTunes Link)

All I can say is two things. The first being is that no Zahara did not die in the fight. The second, I feel terrible for Pierre. My poor sweet Pierre. The next time Zahara is in close proximity of him – he will be getting a hug.

As a side note to all of this is, while thinking that Zahara would die, I made a back up character that is a ranger. I can see this being the ranger’s theme song. However, At the moment, Zahara seems to have taken the song for herself. It is strange to have this sort of connection to a song but it has been making me think forward in a way that I have not yet had the chance with my character in a role play setting. For the sake of the past stuff, I cant change it. The future of her story lies in the hands of the others, and where we would go.

I am not sure weather this just makes me crazy or the fact that I am just really into the song and what is happening. Either way, I am having a good time.

Zephirah’s Adventure: Blogging Schedule!

Since the blog’s inception it has had one consistent thing. Change. It has been nothing short of a magical adventure that I have undertaken and I am ecstatic for all of the metamorphosis the blog has undertaken.

With that being stated, I have an updated schedule of topic’s that are going to be posted through out the week.

Monday’s: Magic! The Gathering (MTG)
Tuesday’s: Tunes (music)
Wednesday’s: Warcraft
Thursday’s: Random Topic!

(Topic’s that are not covered through out the rest of the week!)

Friday’s: Feature of the week!

(This will be community based. Weather MTG, Warcraft, or anything that would spark interest at the moment!)

Saturday’s: Zephirah’s Adventure Podcast!

I know I have not mentioned Sunday’s in my list of days or topic combinations. The reason for that is I would like to plan for the following week of post and continue to keep my Sunday evenings available for my D&D Campaign.

Essentially, the blog post have went from Monday, Wednesday & Friday post up to daily with the exception of Sundays. That is a total of three more post weekly. I am taking this on because I have so many interest and want to make sure I am giving the topic’s that I would like to cover enough space to grow. The blog is called “Adventure” for a reason. So why restrict the topic list or post that I would want to post due to keeping at a schedule that does not no longer fit.

While I am here I wanted to thank all of the readers for visiting, reading, liking the post, and listening to me banter on endlessly in the podcast form of the blog. For those of you that have posted comments or provided feedback, a special thank you to you for everything. I have enjoyed our conversations and would love to interact in that capacity more often.
