I was watching a documentary on TV tonight, and it depicted a women with the auditory equivalent of color blindness. She couldn't hear tone or rhythm, and Chopin sounded like irritating noise to her. That's kind of heartbreaking, amirite?

Was she really bad at interpreting/heating people's inflections then? And do you have a link? That's so bizarre.

It's been a while since I watched it, and so I'm afraid I don't remember much detail about the documentary itself. This is the only relative link I could find, hope it helps.

Yeah it's heartbreaking, I guess. But there is a lot worse things out there and music isn't exactly necessary for happiness. Now I prepare to be downvoted because "music is the most important thing ever"

Oh, such tristesse!

Chopin has a song called "Tristesse." Was that offensive? ._.

Lol no, I know that. I just couldn't tell if you were being sarcastic. It translates as sadness, doesn't it?

That's actually pretty upsetting. It's definitely not something I understand, because I love music.
