Raving and psychedelics create “meaningful social bonds”, a new study has found.
In new findings published in Frontiers in Psychology, as part of a research paper dubbed I Get High With A Little Help From My Friends, researchers have "identified prosocial behaviours and bonding amongst people who attend raves" using a novel model of ritual engagement featuring the "4Ds": dance, drums, sleep deprivation, and drugs.
Scientists have shared what a spiderweb sounds like using Artificial Intelligence.
Markus Buehler, an engineering professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, alongside his team, recently created 3D models of spiderwebs to study spiders' vibrations — their way of communicating — while undertaking tasks in the web such as construction, repair, hunting and feeding.
A new study suggests that Stonehenge was built to amplify sound.
The use for Stonehenge, a prehistoric monument in Wiltshire, England, has been a mystery since its discovery, with a calendar, clock, a sacrificial site and even an alien landing site all among the suggestions for the stucture's original, intended use.
Now, a new study from the University of Salford has found that Stonehenge may have been built to amplify sound, but also to work as a sound chamber, keeping noise out of the stone circle.
Sound can be used to save dying coral reefs, a study has found.
In a paper published by Nature Communications, entitled 'Acoustic enrichment can enhance fish community development on degraded coral reef habitat', scientists highlighted the research surrounding the impact of sound on dead or dying corals.
Brian Eno has had an Asteroid named after him.
On Monday night at the science festival Starmus V in Switzlerland, the ambient music pioneer was presented with the Stephen Hawking Medal for Science Communication.
As a "surprise accolade", however, Eno was also presented with a certificate to commemorate the renaming of 'Asteroid 81948 (2000 OM69)’ to ‘Brian Peter George St John le Baptiste de la Salle Eno’.
Scientists at the University of Arizona have made a breakthrough on research into tinnitus that they hope could help develop a cure.
Research on mice showed that the scientists were able to stop the condition in the animals by blocking a protein that triggers brain inflammation. It's now hoped that they could potentially develop a pill that can treat the condition as well as other hearing problems.
It's currently unknown how tinnitus develops in people, despite one in 10 suffering from the condition.
Celebrating the Apollo 11 launch anniversary and preparing for the upcoming journey to the Moon, NASA have announced their #MoonTunes music challenge.
With astronauts expected to make a three-day journey each way to the Moon in 2024, NASA have opened suggestions for their music playlist to the public.
Not just accepting submissions for songs which have seen a release, NASA have also confirmed links for original productions can be submitted.
Skrillex’s music can protect you from mosquitos, according to a recent study published in the science journal 'Acta Tropica'.
Research apparently shows the airborne menaces are so entertained by 'Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites' they forget to forage for human blood, or look for potential mates to reproduce with. Given the experiment focussed on Aedes aegypti, or the Yellow Fever Mosquito, that sounds good to us.
There are many ways to frame the story of Sherard Ingram’s unique rise and stature as one of techno and electro’s most consistent, authentic and trustworthy DJs. He has limitless chapters entrenched in the entire lifetime of Detroit music culture; multiple aliases and collaborative projects that place him in the Venn overlap of so many genres, from electro to downtempo, even drum & bass. He has numerous personal interests and ideologies.
"Did I feel like a stingray? Never. But I wasn't going to argue with James Stinson. I felt it and I understood what he wanted, because I understood the Drexciya legacy. I was Stingray from that day on."
Mask fully down, there’s an instant switch from Sherard to Stingray. He’s smiling underneath the mask, but you’d never tell. I didn’t ask him if he played poker, but he alludes to a game when we use a table as a prop in the photo shoot, and you get the canny feeling he’d clear the table with you if you did. His slightly hooded, watchful eyes give absolutely nothing away. Not his mood. Not his energy levels.
Music can help reduce anxiety and stress levels by up to 65%, a new study shows.
According to a study from Dr. David Lewis-Hodgson of Mindlab International, there a plenty of different types of songs that, when listened to, can help to decrease anxiety level dramatically.
The study tasked volunteers with solving puzzles specifically designed to induce various amounts of stress.
At the same time, doctors would play a variety of different songs in the lab.
