I have a neurological condition that allows me to quite literally see and touch music when I listen to it. AMA, and/or send me some tunes.
It's called synesthesia, and I find it kind of funny that it's classified as a "neurological condition" because I literally can't imagine processing the world without it. I have come to learn that it is probably the reason why my brain does some odd things. In addition to certain music and sounds causing things to physically manifest on my skin and put shapes and colors in front of my eyes:
-All numbers from -3 to 108 have distinctive colors, dimensions, personalities, and some of them I can feel (19, for example, can only be described as the feeling of a quarter rolled in dough being pushed into my shoulder). This is true to a lesser extent for letters, though some letters have stronger personalities than my numbers.
-I can taste some colors and physically touch others, in addition to certain mixes of colors and shapes.
So please ask me questions or post links to songs. I especially love to talk about my numbers since they are like their own little people.
A word about music: certain things trigger the sights and touching. Songs with unusual time signatures, different sorts instrumentation, and quirky little riffs often do it. A lot of the time trembling voices or voices that go up and down abruptly do it, too. It's kind of a gamble but if I can touch and see your song I will tell you exactly what I experience. Thrash and grunge metal actually is very uncomfortable so please don't send me songs like that.
Edit: I do have to go to bed now. The Clockwork clip was a joke, I'm not Alex DeLarge, I'm actually an 18 year old American woman, which is probably the antithesis of an 18 year old British psychopath. But as far as my brain is concerned, I do have synesthesia. There is no circumstance under which it would need to be diagnosed or treated (for me at least) so I'm sorry, I don't have any physical proof beyond my conveyance of what I touch and see. I will answer more questions and describe more songs tomorrow if people are still interested, but in the meantime, thank you all for the responses and the suggestions.
