I read a newspaper article about scientific research concerning torture with music this morning.
Throughout the world, music is being used as psychological torture.
I found this website called zerodb. The aim of this initiative is to end suffering caused by music torture.
Very sincere topic, but worth checking out. Everyone can join the petition.

Its really strange you should write this thread.
I realise this is a sincere topic that has touched me (in a small way) this week.
On Monday the 21st and Tuesday the 22nd my supervisor (who sits on the other side of my work bench) has been listening to a CD on repeat at near top level on her headphones.
There are only so many times a person can listen to Celine Dion belting out the theme from The Titanic, Its All Coming Back To Me, Think Twice, and other music to die by.
I was lucky and managed to borrow a pair of industrial ear defenders off my boss (I could still hear the top notes!!!), but my other two colleagues unfortunately had to put up with hearing the din over the top of the music they were listening to on their MP3s.
She eventually got the hint and changed the chuffin CD and turned it down a bit.
In all seriousness that was mental torture for at least three people, and I think we all did well not to commit murder!!
I think Celine Dion has a fantastic voice, that would be well put to use developing ear defenders, with the rating on a Dion scale!( I am not a fan and never likely to be as a result of this torture!)

In the not so early morning I like to listen to classic music and read the newspaper. But yesterday I had a bad headake and there was this wonderful string-concert:Horrible! I had to listen to Justin Bieber instead! (Joke!I don't even know a single song by Justin Bieber!!!Honestly!!!)
Here's an other kind of musicalian torture:1,2,3!
But it's true: Complete lack of artific sounds can be wonderful, specially in nature.

So sad, even a wonderful cultural achievement like music can be used to torture people
In German there is a saying: "You may live without fear in a place where songs are sung, evil people don't have songs." Well, that axiom it not true at all, so this childish belief needs to be buried =
Yes Sesmo: Celine Dion, argh real torture, this pair of industrial ear defenders must have been a blessing
"Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie. Bikini"
now that's close to torture for me, too!
Thanks for the reminding, Rise, the "One Two Three" movie is wonderful.

The torture didnt end there Ellee, we then had to listen to two days of West Lifes worst hits.
You Raise Me Up was played at least six times a day. ( More music to die by!)

You have to learn to let the sound through your ears without touching your brain - as you would do in poltical parties advertising spots.
If thatÂ´s not working, brainwash yourself with an hour of Megadeath. than go back to normal life.
