6. A Storia Experiment

Just for #fun, I’m going to try to #explain what I “see” when I hear certain #songs, and find #reallife #images that approximate what I’m envisioning. Of course the images aren’t likely to capture what I really see—and the #visions in my head aren’t that clear. It’s really more like a #feeling.

(By the way, Boston’s “More than a Feeling” sounds #yellow and #bokeh #pixelated to me.)

Sometimes it’s just a #sense of #color; sometimes it’s a kind of #movement or #quality. Sometimes it’s still, and sometimes it moves. It can be a mixture of things. It’s also hard to put into #words.

But I’ll do my best. I thought it would work well on #Storia.

I’ll list a number of #pop and #musicaltheatre songs, including a #video or #audio file. I’ve tried to write down the words I think of to describe the #sound I hear and the accompanying #impression in my brain, and then I used those words as search terms to see what kinds of images come up in #Google. If there are other factors that influence what I see (the #album #cover, what I know of the #artist, a particular sound in the #instrumentation or #recording quality, a video or particular event that I associate it with), I’ll describe those too.

It’s an #experiment… we’ll see if it actually works.
