Are drummers in a different world?

Postby Aspiemom on April 20th, 2011, 1:57 am

This is a fun article about a neurologist who studies how the brain perceives time. About 2/3 through it, Brian Eno shows up to help measure whether drummers perceive time differently than the rest of us. Turns out they're much more accurate than non-drummers. I wonder whether their days seem longer because of it? http://www.newyorker.com/reporting/2011/04/25/110425fa_fact_bilger?currentPage=all

I had the same question. How can he tell how far the drummer is off; behind relative to what?

He's already stated he's in a different dimension when he drums. I believe he said that's when pixie dust comes out of his ears, and David Byrne turns into a troll.
