Do you actually "see" whatever as being simply another layer of reality, or is it something you "see" in your head? And are these things 2 or 3 dimensional? Dynamic or static? Sorry if I'm bothering you, but synesthesia always seemed so cool

It’s like picturing something in your minds eye, not an actual thing that you could mistake for reality. and they’re three dimensional always, sometimes more than one shape, occupying a space. dynamic.

The whole synesthesia thing sounds pretty cool, but is there a downside? Mostly as pertaining to harsh, loud sounds possibly having a distracting or just bad-looking visual element to them?

It might have a downside to some people. I can imagine those who have something-tactile synesthesia might get frustrated, since that triggers the sense of touch or movement (i think), and can make you feel things that don’t happen. There’s apparently a very rare kind in which if you see someone get touched, you “feel” it too. Interesting but I don’t know if I’d like that. 

As far as what I’ve got I actually really love it. Loud sounds don’t really have a distracting element to them. Visions are more prominent with volume, yes, but never distracting, they just come as a whole product, if that makes sense. Nothing really ever looks bad as such, which is probably why is probably why things that might sound horrendous to others sound fantastic to me (again, harsh noise being a great example).

Is there a cut off date that I have too purchase your Album by?

If you’re talking about the CD, yes and no.

There’s not set date in which it’ll stop selling, just whenever it sells out.

Could be two weeks, could be a month, could be more or less.

It’s worth noting though that any orders placed after next thursday won’t be sent until late May because I’m going on a long vacation.

I did NOT realise this had so many notes wow thank you

but regardless, nighttime reblog <3

Your description of your synesthesia in the album's description was super interesting. Can you tell us more about it?

I can try, but you may have to ask some refined questions, since there’s a lot to tell about it! The most important thing to remember is that it’s involuntary, so like, 100% not done on purpose and happens every single time.

Pretty much every number, letter, and some words have a colour assigned to them. Times and dates (such as 8:45 PM, or the year 1823, or March the 5th, or Saturday) all have their own colour (not simply the colours of the corresponding numbers or letters, mind) and location in space, if space is the best word to use. A day looks like a clockface, coloured like the sky would be at any given time. Hours and minutes are a subsection of that clockface, but instead of just following a clock hand around for the time, it’s more focused on the hour position itself. A diagram would explain better… 8:45 PM looks like this:

The darkness is because it’s night time. The whole clock is actually coloured, but it’s hard to portray without animation because, if I take 12 for example, it could be either black or golden, depending on AM or PM. So if I look back at 12PM from 8PM, it’ll be golden, whereas if I look toward 12AM (00:00) from 8PM it will be black.

The months of the year are pretty much the Synesthesia album artwork, but a little less tidy. Each month has its own colour, for seemingly no real reason, aside from the summer months such as June and July which have a summery gold colour, and December being icy blue and white.
There’s also colourful marks on a few months which are mostly to do with significant times. Family and best-friends birthdays, christmas, my birthday, and interestingly, 9/11, which is pretty easy to find now I’ve said it:

Isn’t it fun how nothing particularly fascinating has happened to me in the months of November or March?

Days, times, and the year are where the circular shape stops though. Days of the week are a continuous line or “wall” as I’d liken it to, each day with its own colour and size: (for the record, the colours don’t bleed into the next day or out of the shapes, I just drew it sloppy)

Weekends are obviously bigger due to school being on the weekdays, with Wednesday being the school day i looked forward to the most because of Physical Education.

I couuuuld draw what a year timeline lookslike (not just a year, but an overall timeline of a period of years), but that would take a while depending on the timescale, since this goes back or forward indefinitely with everything looking very different in shape, position and colour, unlike the week which goes back or forward indefinitely, but always looks the same due to the repeating nature of weeks.

The main other main thing is sound, in which any sound or music looks like some abstract shape in my head (makes me wonder if people who came up with Windows Media Player (or whatever program) visualisers used this kind of experience to design them, since they’re very similar for me). This may well be a factor in why I enjoy noise music as much as I do, because it’s definitely a visual thing for me as well as aural. It’s interesting to see what the sounds do, if that makes sense.

A few other minor things are that smells, tastes and touches evoke colours too, but these aren’t as “strong” or “prominent” and are never the same twice as far as I remember.

The most minor thing, because the situation doesn’t come up often, would be that I can often “hear” things when looking at something in silence. .gifs are the best example. If a .gif has a particularly noticable loop point (if the last and first frames don’t match up, for example) I’ll hear a thud. And depending on the content, speed, and whatever else in the gif, there’ll be other sounds - but mostly for sudden movements.

(I’ve tried very hard not to sound pretentious or like some special child that must be pampered for his abilities or something, it’s just very fun to talk about hah).

hello :D i love your work and have been listening to you music for a few years now :3 i just bought the pinkie pie album and i cant wait to get it <3 also how are you?

I noticed that Ride sounds an awful lot like the European and Japanese soundtrack for the "Metallic Madness" level in Sonic CD. Is this intentional? If not, then it's a really cool coincidence :D

Coincidence! Since I’m not very familiar with any sonic music besides like, that Stage 1 music everyone knows or whatever. I’ll take a listen now though since you got me interested.
