Testing a 555 circuit, courtesy of F.M. Mims. The circuit worked well except for the fact that I needed to keep my hand grounded for best response. I’ll have to work to fix this.
In my observations in how people “use” music, I have noticed the following:
-People use music to isolate themselves (while commuting and while coding)
-People use music to relax and unwind (listening and playing)
-People use music to pump themselves up (sports and exercise)
-People create music for work (composers and performers)
-People use music to socialize (enjoying music with others with same tastes)
-People use music to socialize (background music in a bar to make a comfortable atmosphere)
-People use music to socialize, drink and have fun (Beatles Rock Band)
-People create music to stimulate creativity (jamming with friends)
-People use music to make you remember their brand (theme music and sonic branding)
-People use music to find common ground (talking about music)
-People use music to comfort themselves
Here is a track that was composed this week by my brother for a commercial. This is an example of people using music for work.
