Here’s something you don’t see every day:
From the video description:
A simple plus/minus 1V signal from a beat-heavy song can be used to stimulate the motor neurons in the leg of a cockroach. This is an example of such.
Using setups like this can help us understand how neurons and muscles work, and can assist us in understanding our own nervous systems.
I’ll tell you what else this helped me understand: we’ve reached such mastery of nature that we’re now just having fun with it. I’m not sure if this is good or bad, but the above example is certainly a bit macabre.
Day 26: a song that you can play on an instrument
I can’t play any instruments, but this is the album I like to play about with on Djay, mixing software for iPad
Day 27: a song that you wish you could play
Voted best guitar solo ever, so get ready for a face-melter! Thanks to Andrew for the hookup.
Day 28: a song that makes you feel guilty
Hmm… no comment.
Day 29: a song from your childhood
I remember this blaring out over the kitchen speakers as I began to develop a taste for music.
Day 30: your favorite song at this time last year
These guys were the soundtrack to my summer last year – nearly that time again!
So there we have it, people – thirty songs that mean something to me in (at least in some small way). I hope this has been at all enlightening, it’s certainly been fun to put together. Don’t forget, you can always submit new music to me by adding to my collaborative Spotify playlist.
Happy listening, Tom x
