Of all the forums in the world, this is the one that should appreciate the following:

Very interesting. Any thoughts or comments, especially about music as a tool for healing or destruction?

Welcome to the BBB WeirdOne!

That was an interesting link.
I listen to certain Classical Works to relax from a tough day....
OR escape to another place through a virtual image the music can paint....

Hello WeirdOne and welcome. Interesting article. Like TM I listen to classical music to relax or divert my attention. The whistles of death article was interesting. I believe that these many have been the inspiration for today's version of "Peter and the Wolf" :rofl:
