The more and more I listen to music the more I love it.
I have no idea what the instruments are and I have no idea what the lyrics are…but yet somehow I love music.
It’s like candy for my ears.
I usually listen to music before I go to bed and it takes me forever to go to bed because I get distracted by the music…and I don’t want to stop listening to it 😉
I have a couple of friends (Seth and Dennis) who are also CI users…they love music. They recently started subtitling music videos through overstream.net and I decided to take a shot at it. Of course I have to look up the lyrics and attempt to lipread the singers on music videos (which is difficult considering you can’t always see their lips). A lot of it is guesswork on my part.
I’ve found that I enjoy this challenge. It forces me to work on my lipreading and auditory skills in a fun way. Of course the timing isn’t perfect just because that’s how subtitling works. I have one music video completed (Great DJ by the Ting Tings) and am working on 2 other videos (Boom Boom Pow and We Walk).
Enjoy! Check every once in a while for new videos.
