@MonoStone... I picture you as Orlando Weeks from The Maccabees because that's the music I think of

@symphonious7 You remind me of the guy from Perfume Genius.. for the same reason 

 

Oh man I looked him up that just cuts like a knife like right in my heart, and you know why??  Cause I can see WHY you think that *DEATH BLOW*  *falls dramatically*....  

 

Lol but yeah when I said that I thought "People are gonna pick women with me.....  and very very effeminate men...." yyyyep!  lmao  I'm totally exaggerating btw, I just think it's funny haha

I don't see geometrics (anything in straight lines--just nope), but do envision streaks of colored light, maybe the width of what a pen draws, dart to and fro, rise, drop, do circles or waves, swirlies, etc according to the music, speeding up or slowing with the music rising with the music, falling with the music, mostly when I close my eyes and mostly with violin and cello music.

this happens to me...........mostly vocals and strings for me too i think though

and other things that i can't really explain

 

synesthesia of sorts?

That's the word I couldn't think of.  I still get it quite frequently but I can't turn it on or off, it takes a special sort of... mindset or... state I'm in, and honestly I think it's part of what makes it so hard for me to mix!  I'm focusing on shapes not thinking about feels.

For me, the shapes/colors are only when I have my eyes closed. But when they're open, I do completely zone out and can't really focus on much of anything else. I also get a weird feeling... 

With my eyes closed, it's almost like lucid dreaming.. without being asleep. 

But I can "see" where everything is and where is fits when mixing.. it's all very physical I guess

Though I've never considered myself to have that s-word thingy

You know I literally like NEVER close my eyes when  I mix, I'm gonna try that!

This is normal... seeing them with your eyes open means you're tripping.

All those tutorials I watched, all the advice I was given, all those years cranking away at the controls, no one's ever brought this thought to my attention.  Maybe my problem is the mushrooms.

HOW COULD I HAVE BEEN SO BLIND.

They do make good headphones... Use celery as the headband between them.

Well yeah... obviously not the pro choice. Trevor Horn has always used shiitake, and will only use egg noodle for the chord, never spaghetti.... but we can't all have pro gear can we.

So what do people here look like based on their voices?  

 

Clearly Richard looks almost exactly like Midge Ure  ... What does everyone else look like?

 

 

I don't know who Midge Ure is, but going by "voice" minus what I've learned from his bio (indicating a little more age than my image based on his voice).  Going by vocals on Charon, Here goes:  long banged jet black hair short in the back, covering half the face in the front, pale skin, thin, skinny jeans maybe high top black sneakers white t-shirt black oversized leather jacket. Grunge look😜
