A different tune!

Prompt ~

The duo kept the listeners enthralled. Even connoisseurs of music could not have recognized the tune. It was mellifluous and made one think of twinkling stars. The strumming sounded like the rumbling before a storm. The cadence whispered like rustling of leaves in light breeze. It ended in a staccato.

The applause was joyous clapping. Not a word was uttered.

The musicians had touched the very core of their listeners. Feelings and images were transmitted directly to the minds of the listeners as the audience comprised completely deaf and mute individuals.

  1. I love your description of the music and its effect. I’m still puzzling over how completely deaf people could hear the music, although I know they can feel rhythm and things like that, but I like what you did with this.


    • Thank you, Janet. 🙂

      The wedding of neurosciences and digital technology is experimenting with ‘thought transmission’ using implanted electrodes.
      Moreover, telepathic communication is well accepted – I just used it with music.

  2. Love this. When most people say they “felt the music” they mean hearing it and reacting according to what is happening now and what has happened in the past and what they are expecting, therefore bringing a feeling. I believe your audience is feeling the vibrations through the air, floor and tables.

  3. Dear Yarnspinner, I know an elderly widower man that had a Cochlear implant and can now hear and that’s where he met his new wife, while they were getting their implants. It is fascinating – unbelievable. He finally got to talk to his brother on the phone. Miracles do happen! Thanks, Nan 🙂

  4. I really enjoyed your description of the song, compared to natural aspects. The twinkling stars, thunder, and leaves are a cleverly creative way to describe a rhythm, as opposed to just saying what chords were played and typical music lingo. It also had a beautiful meaning behind it, and I love the concept that music can literally bring everyone together. I also enjoyed reading your responses to other people’s comments. Very informative about the research and development in the auditory field. Simply awesome!

I love arguments
