And I’ve read that you wanted to create a multi-sensory experience because you’ve had an accident and were blinded in one eye. What do you mean by a multi-sensory experience?
Oh my gosh, everyone’s excited about this idea. It’s just like a random one in my notebook. I really wanted to do this for a long time but, when I was fifteen, I got like a cyst on my eyes— yeah, some terrible things happened on my eye—and it left me blinded. It was really weird being in the darkness like that. A lot of my other senses kind of enhanced if that makes sense. I was noticing different things in my favorite songs. It’s really weird; everything got affected by taking one of the senses.
So I think it would be a cool idea for one of my projects or shows to do a multi-sensory thing. For example, each song has a different smell that gets released to go with it and different colors, so if you smelled it, you’d think of a song, or if you heard the song, you would think of the color, you know what I mean? Kind of join it together. Because with my songs anyway—I’m sure other people will have this—but each song in my head has a color. I think it’ll be cool to link them together because that’s like a personal thing to me. I mean I’d love to go to a show where that happens, so if I can do it for other people that would be sick.
Yeah, I think it’s an amazing idea to have. It might be a very cool and new way of experiencing music.
Yeah, for sure, and if I did this for a project and release finals or CDs or whatever, they could be scratch and sniff of the smell.
