    Music is more meaningful to me than the lyrics. I often give the song different meaning than was intended by the song writer. Or latching on to a refrain or line in the lyrics which can be construed in different ways. Some music consumes me, usually classical (vernacular definition), opera, ambient, etc. Others can enhance emotions or help to mitigate negative emotions. Some music evokes colours, sensations, etc.

Lexicon had a thread on it a while back with articles saying if you experience chills with music your brain is wired with more receptors that respond to music. There are also studies comparing music to drugs in terms of stimulating the pleasure centers of the brain. I think the more you listen to music and the more diverse your selections become the more your brain builds to accommodate your preferences. I may have more receptors keyed to musical input because I listen to so much music.
    Hmm, not synethesia, though I wish I had it! But I'll try to explain what I mean (I'll post later to give more detail) is taking in the information through music, feeling a stir inside, an emotional response, could be a mental response, now, what does that response ultimately lead to? What do you create with that? What does that motivate within you? Do you find inspiration to write upon hearing a moving song? Maybe draw? Maybe even solve a problem by abstracting the interplay between the elements within a song? (This last question is what can occur for me )

    Restriction in a sense that it is the limiting factor in the delivery of information, meaning that your personal response is only in reaction to the auditory flow of information. Now, if you were to attend the symphony or say, the ballet or opera, you would not only hear the music, but obtain the visual information as well.

    I don't use "restriction" here in a negative sense as there is an undeniable beauty in the requirement for the listener to fill in the blanks with their subjective experience. We are not told how to "see", though guided and persuaded perhaps by the composition of the music, but we "see" through the creation of what our minds may produce upon hearing something that has entered your soul.

    Oh simply because a song came on Spotify while I was working and it diverted my attention to something which felt rather moving and inspiring. The music was not simply background noise at that point. Then it got me thinking of how I prefer to listen to certain genres of music to encourage creative thought and I wanted to then see what other people's reaction to music may produce.

    Oh heck no, you better not pull a "Dreamer" on me! I leave these sorts of posts all the time with the intent to return, and I probably only actually do like...25% of the time? Haha

    That's definitely my general strategy. I try.

    I've had one funny thing for decades where certain keys are specific colors to me and it stays the same. It is related more to the conception of each key rather than me having perfect pitch, so I'm not sure what that means. They never change:

    A = Green
    B = Orange
    C = Yellow
    D = Red
    E = Blue
    F = Purple
    G = Brown

    Besides that I am imaginative with abstract sound, which is why I often use programmatic titles in my own pieces. My senses are not compartmentalized at all, but are always integrated. It's actually a Western European, German most specifically, that conceives of music as "absolute", as existing in isolation to any other senses and that was considered an ideal for years. The idea of using a picturesque title or any non-sound based association in the title or conception of the piece is very much looked down on in that philosophy. I've never been able to think that way. I've always created music videos in my head.

    Oh I’ve written entire short stories by inspiration gained by listening to a piece of music. It will generate all sorts of ideas or spark memories. Sometimes I listen to distract myself from thoughts.

    Same here. I had an argument with my brother and wanted to get that toxic shit out of my body. I went into my den and flipped on Coldplay's "Clocks." Just the piano intro, alone, can start zapping any negativity out of me. It's amazing, really.

    "The Scientist" and "Fix You" are two of my go-to songs to bring me more in tune with my emotions. Not just negative or bleak emotions either. That point in "Fix You" about, 3/4 the way in where the music suddenly "releases", I can feel an internal freedom and weightlessness come alive on so many levels, it's sublime.
