    Notes

    Being my first full-length album with all songs (except one) containing vocals, Synesthesia is an enormous landmark for my music-making journey. It's been in the works on-and-off for nearly two years as of release date, and captures many many emotions good and bad experienced over that time (though some songs are about simpler matters, such as "Wasting My Time", which is about the fact that the album took so long).

    The album is my proudest musical achievement to date (perhaps alongside Ariah's "Voyager"), and is one of the biggest achievements of my life so far, and I very much hope you enjoy it.

    "What is 'Synesthesia' anyway?"
    Synesthesia (also spelled synæsthesia or synaesthesia, from the ancient Greek σύν [syn], "together", and αἴσθησις [aisthēsis], "sensation") is a neurological phenomenon in which stimulation of one sensory or cognitive pathway leads to automatic, involuntary experiences in a second sensory or cognitive pathway. People who report such experiences are known as synesthetes.

    I myself am a synesthete. In basic terms, I perceive all numbers and letters with their own colours and location in space. Example: the artwork for this album is a slightly simplified version of how a year looks to me, starting with January at the bottom, and continuing clockwise each month with its own colour (though the shapes used are more refined to keep the artwork tidy). My minds eye is almost always displaying this image, with myself at the corresponding location to whatever time of year it is.
    Another form of synesthesia I experience is "chromesthesia", in which sounds are perceived as colours and/or shapes such as colourful waveforms or other abstract geometries.

    Fun!
