  20. I love your videos and music! I love the fact that you are a teacher and are able to have a better relationship with music because of it. It validates how I feel being a teacher and writing. Thank you for the inspiration and validation!

  21. I’m a newcomer to the fandom of Carlos Wilde. I almost literally stumbled across Carlos and his work when he followed me on Twitter ( @melodeeaaron ) and I followed him back. He sent me a link to a few of his songs. After a couple of “listens”, I was hooked. Yes, the word “listens” is indeed in quotes. Let me tell you why…

    I have been deaf since birth. No, not hard of hearing and need to wear hearing aids. I’m totally 100% stone cold deaf. What the doctors call “Profoundly Deaf”. I had a specialist tell me once that I have, effectively, no ears at all. You could fire a gun behind me and other than the shock wave, I’d never know you did it. And, fellow Carlos fans, it is that shock wave that is important.

    I can feel music. Sometimes I can pick up vibrations through the air, others I can feel them through objects. I have a device called a Bone Phone that is not much more than a speaker that hangs around my neck to rest on my shoulders and chest. I can get the vibrations that way, and that is the system I used to “listen” to Carlos’ music. I can “hear” each note. With that system plus a rather sophisticated captioning system, I can “hear” the words.

    Am I missing things? Sure…subtle key shifts, the sound of the fingers of the guitar player sliding up and down the strings, delicate vocal intonations. Those are but a few. But I can–and do–enjoy music.

    Add to my deafness the fact that I know jack shit about music. The closest I get to playing an instrument is running my MP3 player. And trust me…you do NOT want to hear me sing!

    But I do know what I like.

    And I like the music made by Carlos Wilde.

    To me, there is a unique blend of old, new, and futuristic qualities. The hard punch of metal and the Big Hair guitar bands is there. The tight melodies of Classic Rock and the soft sway of Olde Time Country are in there. The rapid shifts of contemporary music floats around. And for reason I can’t put into words because of my lack of musical education I can “hear” a little of Tangerine Dream and Emerson. Lake, and Palmer in the mix giving me a promise of a bright musical future.

    There is only one area where I actually envy those with normal hearing: Listening to music.

    But thanks to talented artists like Carlos, I can still enjoy music.

    Keep Loving!

    1. Truly uplifting feedback, Melodee, beautifully written. You may be “stone cold deaf” but you certainly know your hot rock. ELP! Now, that’s a blast from the past.

      1. Thanks, Paul!

        As I recall, ELP released “Lucky Man” the year before I was born, but it’s still on my top-ten favorite songs list.

        Try this sometime if you want an amazing experience…

        Get your two biggest speakers. Sit between them and turn the volume up so far you break the knob off. Put in good earplugs. Play “Lucky Man” as you rest your fingertips on the speaker cones, about midway between the dome and foam edge.

        When the synthesizer riff (not sure if that’s the technically correct term or not!) hits, your entire body will shake in harmony!

        Keep Loving!

    2. I’m speechless, Melodee – You have made my day – don’t really know what to day except that I am honoured that in some way I can make your world a bit more musical. Much love!

      1. Carlos, it is music and musicians that make life better for me.

        I’ve written and published more than 500 novels, 750 shorter works, and God knows how many magazine stories over the years under many pen names and in pretty much every genre you can imagine. But they all share one very important thing in common…

        They have all, to one degree or another, been inspired by songs.

        It is I who owe you, and all the musicians out there, thanks.

        Keep Loving!

        1. That’s amazing – You have been busy, my friend. Versatility is a great thing to have on your side – Glad to hear you have put that gift to good use. Hope you keep delivering the goods. All the best, Melodee
