An electronic device capable of creating an alternation between two perceptual conditions of the same sound message.
Concretely and in a very simplified way, the Electronic Ear makes it possible to activate the stapedial reflex. This reflex causes contraction of the auditory muscles. It is activated by the sudden passage of low frequencies, which does not require any effort of accommodation to high frequencies which requires the ear to make an important accommodation effort. Indeed, this back and forth between the tension and the relaxation of the muscles of the ear is made possible by an electronic flip-flop which is a device capable of creating an alternation between two perceptual conditions of the same sound message. This activity can be compared to gymnastics, which thanks to repeated use and progressive mobilization of the ear, optimizes the transmission of the message to the brain.
A delayed sound transmission
The sound message is transmitted to the brain by air and bone through headphones equipped with a vibrator. The Electronic Ear is designed to be able to program a delay between the sound transmitted by air and that transmitted by bone. Through this delay, called precession, the brain is prepared to receive the transmitted message. After a sustained hearing stimulation, the brain naturally takes over the work of anticipation accomplished through the machine. The Electronic Ear is equipped with many other features designed to take into account technological innovations and scientific research.
To understand this action on human equilibrium, we must remember that music is characterized by rhythm, which touches the body, by harmony, which reaches the emotional zones, and by the melody that appeals to intellectual structures.
Ideally, in the classical period, these three parameters had to be balanced, which was rarely the case, one or the other often being dominant, thus giving a very particular musical discourse; Now, in the case of Mozart, it seems that this balance has been achieved, which may explain the universal character of this music.
