IG ! these posts are excellent additions to the subject of increasing
brain activity. I see musical ability as a gift. your fortunate to have it.
( replicate- play)
a friend many years ago , was in a coma due to an auto accident. when he
awoke from the coma, he remembered nothing (little) could barely speak.
however , he was an musician in life. soon he remembered scores, piano,
and percussion - he was an drummer by trade craft. the more he played, the better his cognitive skills improved. ( memory - speech )
it's official ... this is your thread now.
later, Severe depression and music therapy. ( PTSD ) other.
Haha...no, it's your thread but where I see music, I gravitate...I'll
contribute when spirit moves me.
Kind of a coincidence that I was listening to part of
Rachmaninoff's 2nd piano concerto as I have
been doing since I was a wee one...I learned to hum
it before I started piano lessons and would become
extremely emotional. I later learned of Rachmaninoff's
bouts with depression and how this piece related.
I named a kitty o mine Rachmaninoff and he died
on Rachmaninoff's birthday, which was odd. I wrote a
poem about it.
Anyway, I found this link and it isn't a good video at all
but sort of explains some things. The entire composition
is well worth listening to. Several modern pieces have
been taken from it. Full Moon and Empty Arms being one.http://www.awesomestories.com/assets/ra ... in-c-minor
