Frequency TheoryHosted by: Tom Tenney
Live Thursday at 8:00 pm
Category: Experimental, Music
About the ShowAlthough frequency theory is principally a physiological theory that tries to explain how the anatomical structure of the ear accounts for hearing, it is also a psychological theory that investigates how sound is experienced by the mind…Freeform anarchy and spontaneous acts of randomocity. Side trips to the jungle, fevered yaks with the unhip and/or unhinged, 120 minutes of oscillating fan boy Ikaros flying over and through a house perched precariously…teeteringly… upon the rock n roll our parents jittered and jattered to at the Zombie High School Hop. Feel free to call in and tell me to shut up or get out of the sandbox.
