Hi Ouddicts, In pondering the development of olfactory sensitivity, I've wondered how our noses might act like our ears. I'm a musician, and I'm trained to pick out layers that make up the overall sound, noticing bass, mid-register voices, and top notes, as well as percussive elements and large scale formal development. I take this largely for granted, but most people's ears require effort to pick these pieces apart. I wonder if, with time, my nose can learn to smell like my ears hear. On that note, I've felt inspired to offer my own creativity to this board. I recently created a piece of music that has several layers, perhaps the way that an oud can have a multifacted profile, and I've posted it here for analysis and criticism. Consider it a token of gratitude to the artisans of oud. https://soundcloud.com/user8466702/38-cents A few notes on this piece: The base layer is a recording of indiginous central african hunter-gatherers of the Bayaka ethinic group. The additional layers are me playing the piano and the cajon, which is a peruvian drum made of wood. This is part of a larger work in progress, please do not share the link or otherwise make copies. Enjoy!
