Music in the Dark.

I'm referring to prioritising on hearing when you're not looking at anything. Not so much on gear bias.

I think it makes a huge difference when listening to music, especially when it comes to focusing on the details.

There is a lot to be said about how blind people have an incredible sense of hearing

I don't think it is a property of music, but of our hearing. 

 

For early humanoids a good hearing in the dark was a matter of life and death, while at daytime they could rely much more on eyesight. Thus the evolution promoted those who have better developed this sense, and our night time listening still benefits from the increased hearing sensitivity.

 

That's how I like to explain this phenomenon anyway :cool:

Yes.   I think the 'increase' in hearing in the dark is also linked to our brain not trying to "link" what we're hearing with what we're seeing .... it allows the illusion to become more real.

It is easier to concentrate. And easier to nod off... :thumb:

Aye, that's the main reason I keep my eyes open. I don't want to wreck any expensive cartridges. Mind you I plan to get a Denon DP-70M tonearm mounted soon. It has auto lift at the end of each side. I just hope it performs as well as my Fidelity Research tonearms. It's in many ways a good deal more advanced

Listening in the valve glowed darkness is a wondrous way to go ... the only downside is that it's harder to find your glass of stout in the dark.

I listen in the dark because after years of watching, my gear doesn't move an inch.  Well, everything except the record on the turntable.

It’s bizarre but I find music LESS involving when I close my eyes. I’ve often wondered why this is, but for me it’s definitely a thing.

Self distraction is possible..............

 

Ha, ha...yes, Logic....one of your better ones.:)

 

I believe that too much 'self distraction' can damage the eyesight, so seeing in the dark might become difficult.

Agree...I love listening to music in the dark, always have. Seems to intensify the emotion conveyed by the music.
