1. During my grade 8 piano exam, for the aural part I was asked two modulation questions (which key —> which key) answered the first one with ease but for some reason I couldn’t make out what the second modulation was. I remember answering F minor because everything looked orange to me on the whole, but in hindsight I’m pretty sure it was Bb minor; they are very similar because the dominant colours are both orangish yellow, however the thing that sets them apart is the tiny brown-purplish bit (Ab) and the tiny velvet part (C#) and Bb minor is more orange-y overall, but I was so nervous my mind just went completely blank and blurted out the wrong answer. I’ve come to realise that I am a lot more sensitive to certain keys with brighter colours (orangish-yellow, green) — anything with more sharps and flats (most are dark red, purple, brownish purples) confuse the hell out of me because they just mix together and I have no idea what to play on the spot. Say if I’m improvising chords for a song, I would do A LOT BETTER if it was an E minor song compared to if it was an Ab minor song.

  2. I think you're right! These look very similar

  3. May I ask if you applied for just a regular Physics degree or one with a year abroad?

  4. Omg thank you so much!!!! Subbed!!! Out of curiosity are you active on any Facebook shell groups?

  5. I’d never listened to that Killers song that you drew, but I LOVED the way you painted it so much that I listened to that song, and loved it just as much as the colors you portrayed. Can you do more of these?

  6. Thanks, made my day. Yeh ofc! I posted a few others in the sub, but yeh defo making more of these cause I’m hella bored. Cheers

  7. If a C is played for 5 s and then a D starts at t=2 s, color-wise, there would first be just red, then it would be a weird dull red + blue thing. In my head, my position would still remain at C, but I could "feel" the D behind it, like to me the C is more prominent than the added D, then again it depends on what notes. If C and A' were played together, in my head they will be very far apart. Color-wise, it doesn't matter if it's a chord or a succession of notes, because all it depends on is the pitch. Spacial-wise, the chords would probably just follow the key. Like a C major chord stays at where C is.

  8. Hmmmm thanks for answering!! I did some searching and I haven't seen any Haliotis iris shells quite this dark, and exclusively blue/green. They seem to usually have other color tones in their patterns, whereas this shell only has blue and green with black lines. Could the coloration be due to some dye? I'm really hoping to find an intact version of this shell, but it seems pretty unique unfortunately :(

  9. You could try searching "Paua shells" instead, which is the common name for the species I mentioned, even though the results should be quite similar.
