I brought along my iPod on a recent trip east and listened to a lot of music with the roar of the airplane in the background. I was shocked to hear grossly out of tune notes I had never heard before. Hmmm. Is this related to Glenn Gould's comment about practicing with the vacuum going?
We will not name names. Partly because we cannot remember what they were and don't have an airplane handy.
