It’s possible I’m introspection/auditory dominant. I can speed read but by “chunking” which is blurring over the whole visual field and allowing salient features to “pop out” as you read.
My short term memory is defective I think and I think I have to ‘get it all out’ as quickly as possible or else it’s gone. So if you ask me what I was thinking about 9 seconds ago, I couldn’t, but if it was 3 seconds ago I could. I timed it once. Took a while. 4-6 seconds and it’s gone to the next thought.
There was one type of sheet music I really really liked. I had a music teacher that tried teaching me jazz stuff – it was my last music teacher and he was good. He taught me some avante-guard stuff, including something called graphic notation. — and I’ve used that before.
My mind has a lot of unnamed music pieces that swirl around and listening to that tango started a process of matching musical ideas from other pieces, other places. It’s such a visceral experience.
What happens in my brain is a continual .. um.. what’s the word? Medley.
Yeah, I guess medley is the word. It’ll start with something from that tango — it has a famous downword chord progression that I like — and my mind goes on a journey – and now for some reason it’s on the starting bars of Star Wars.
There’s a logical chain that goes from one to the other somehow – some kind of music logic I guess – but I don’t know what it is.
The most I ever seem to get down for music is a chord progression, a few lyrics or instructions, and some notes about my surroundings at that moment to act as a memory jog.
that’s what it is, yeah. I’ve had to learn how people think my own way too. It’s why I prefer conversations (like this) over watching youtube videos about things because of the two way nature of it. I can negotiate meaning if confused about something. Can’t do that when watching a 1 way video
