"Schizophonia" describes a state where what you hear and what you see are unrelated.
The word was coined by the great Canadian audiologist Murray Schafer and was intended to communicate unhealthiness. Schafer explains: "I coined the term schizophonia intending it to be a nervous word. Related to schizophrenia, I wanted it to convey the same sense of aberration and drama."
His assertion is that continual (habitual) schizophonia is unhealthy.
So, for audiophilia....Is sitting in a room full of inaminate objects and expecting to be fooled into thinking one is listening to a jazz ensemble somehow "wrong?"
Is this a validation of the low-light no-light listening paradigm?
Could it mean (gasp!) that those damn videos of musical perfformances are "healthier" than listening without video?
Man, I really don't enjoy video - it seems less real to me than the sound of my Hi Fi, even with its associated visual-sonic disconnect.
Maybe video is too fake looking, and audio on it's own is a better approximation of an event, for some.
Time for Pete Townsend to write a rock opera about Scizophoinia.
I totally agree about compression being sonically fatiguing.
