HUM_FORUM: Re: Tesla at Niagra Falls
- Jonn Serrie sounds interesting and you mention another aspect that I've
found too - if you like a piece of music enough or if it's loud enough
it does seem to divert attention from the hum. Even those awful
haranguing TV ads will do it! Maggie

if it is what you describe below, but it is a very relaxing kind of
music. I call it "space music", it's very dreamy and relaxing. My two
favorites of his are "And The Stars Go With You" and "Flightpath". If
memory serves me correctly, I think Jim Egger once said he enjoys
Serrie's music too. In my experience, any music will mask the hum. You
could probably find Serrie's albums at Amazon, if you're interested.
