This is the second part of my discussion with Josuël Rogers, a coach who uses music - specifically Hip Hop - to help his students and clients develop self-awareness and confidence. We talked about how music influences our moods (making a playlist for yourself can really help!), how personal sound can be and the power of words (among other things). You can find him at Hip Hop Culture Coaching (https://www.hiphopculturecoaching.com), if you'd like to learn more about the services he offers and the information he has to share.
In the second part of our conversation, we talked about:
Foley in film and the making of weather sounds
How your mind associates a type of sound with the weather
How the "filter" of a microphone changes sound
Hearing your own voice from a third-person's perspective
Randomness and how that influences what we hear
How the same song can represent different moods for different people
How personal sound is
How we fixate on sounds we're more familiar with (a drummer focuses on the drums in music, for instance)
The best kept secret about making playlists to help us experience the world in the way we want to
Repetition is key - words matter ("impossible" puts a block on things immediately, etc.)
Everything around you is a word
How a hockey coach learned to better coach his team through Neuro Linguistic Programming
