Synesthesia [ sin-uh s-thee-zhuh] : Noun
A sensation produced in one modality when a stimulus is applied to another modality, as when the hearing of a certain sound induces the visualization of a certain color.
Have you ever had one of those moments when you're listening to a song and the track describes captures the entire scene like you're starring in your own music video? That feeling you get when you're headed into the weekend, driving with the windows down on a warm afternoon. The sun casts a blanket of golden sun across the city skyline, you're stuck in traffic but you're not even mad about it. Maybe the feeling of a damp, foggy, pine-scented, hike through the mountains after a summer storm. Those grey kinda days filled with crisp mountain air, when you're ready to sit in front of the fire in your favorite sweater. Each moment encompasses a feeling, an emotion, a sound.
Everyone experiences music differently, whether it's favoring a specific genre, or hunting down a specific sound. We've all heard the saying, "A painter paints [their] pictures on canvas. But musicians paint their pictures on silence." We're taking the infamous Leopold Stokowski quote and formulating our newest playlist series: SYNESTHESIA.
The SYNESTHESIA series is based around color palettes and physical sensations discoverable in every day life. By blurring the lines between how one experiences life and how we discover new music, we've come to find that individuals tend to have more in common than we care to admit. It's not rocket science and we know you didn't need us to tell you that, BUT here we are.
We're starting with 6 playlists/color palettes: PeachyPink, RagingRuby, SunshineLime, MidnightSkyLounge, EvergreenSage, and GoldenClementine.
You can listen to all 6 playlists exclusively on Spotify. We will continuously add music to each playlist and cycle some out as seasons change. The best part for you as a listener, we'll open these playlists up EACH TUESDAY as collaborative playlists so you can add your favorite tracks, too. Find a song, leave a song, pretty simple, all you have to do is provide silence we can paint on.
