I know that "visuals" are increasingly prevalent and desired, but
I personally do not derive any benefit from them when music is being
played. Like most folks, I have an active imagination that can
take me on some terrific journeys while listening to inspired music.
When visuals are in the picture, that imagination shuts down
As a simple example, the erotic imagery that my mind conjures up
when listening to Scheherazade is amazing to me. With a visual
accompanies the music, it is replaced by what's on the screen. No
offense, but I'll take my imagination every time.
