Tom Jenkinson tells Crack everything that’s rubbish about live AV shows, and why he’s now doing one (via CRACK Magazine)
“I’m sure lots of people have this, but I have a particular thing where sound will often produce mental images. They can vary from just a simple colour or maybe a geometric arrangement to complex images or even scenes, memories if you like. Memories from a long time before the music was made, which is a bit spurious in itself, but part of the point was to see if I could actually recreate any of those mental images via this process.”
So it sounds like he has synaesthesia. I only get it with certain specific sounds. eg feedback or tinnitus is like seeing a red line on the horizon for me.
