Whisperings

Since this week I had m0st of my midterms, I did a lot less listening and a lot more stydying. I can not study in silence however, so I took advantage of of the iTunes Radio station "Whisperings." These are piano solos with no othe rvocals or instruments. This ended up being a very good idea for studying because I didn't get distraced by ther music pretty much at all. The music on "Whisperings" is very uninteresting and best compared to what we consider "elevator music." As much as I didn't want to like it, it was perfect to study to. Sometimes you just need something a little less than interesting.

The station also had the habit of playing a couple of really boring songs followed by something either well known or suprisingly entertaining. It was pretty cool to listen to the station for long enough, and just when I wanted to turn it off, a piano duet in 5/4 filled with Neopolitan chords would start playing (that actually really happened) So overall good to study to and also to zone out to... even if it's not as exciting as what we have to listen to for class.
