Does anyone know who plays (what sounds like) a stand up bass? Not Simeon. The practicing floats through the air to my house. I have looked, as this happens 1or 2 a month.And while I wouldn't mind necessarily, the playing can go on for 12 or more hours constantly,sometimes through the night. So....I would just like to learn where its coming from and meet with this person. Thanks for any help you can give.

Well could it be some type of machine or generator running in the distance or it's someone cranking the music.

I also hear it when winds are blowing out of the south. I think it may be aliens on the top of High Island signaling ET's. I say screw the wall, let's build a dome. Rolling Eyes Shocked Very Happy Wink

I've seen and heard that group. They are Nitty Gritty Dirt Band wan-na-bes and only play Blue Grass, not classical. The good money is still on the High Island aliens. Very Happy Wink Very Happy

Musical ear syndrome, possibly? Multiple causes. Bummer.

It could be MES (musical ear syndrome) but some us remember LSD when we could not only hear wild things but also see them. Rolling Eyes Very Happy Shocked Wink
What happened to the good old days when we simply enjoyed our hallucinations and didn't try to over analyze them. Cool

Tuning in turning on and dropping out may have been swell for you Pirate.How does that address others problems today? You've been sailing off on a far out trip for a long long time. Real people have names, you must content yourself with being a concept. Have a nice trip. Laughing

I've been tripping for so long I can't remember where the journey started, where it is going or where I am. I've tossed the map away if there ever was one. What I do know is it has been a hell of a ride and have enjoyed every moment. Hoping the same for everyone else. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

The machinations of the BI pirate are some of my favorite posts. His sardonic wit gets me through the Winter as I dream about a Spring return to the island.

Mystery solved, maybe. Sirens have been reported in the dunes on the west side of High Island, casting their songs to passing ships and sailors. The Chicago to Mac race and sailors may be their target for next summer. Shocked Rolling Eyes Wink

Thanks everyone for the input. I did research MES & it is fascinating. AlL I know at this point is it seems to occur about once a month for 3-4 days and then it's gone. So... whatever it is ... it does stop..
I think I will be meditating more just for balance.
Maybe it's my march madness...LOL
