Our era of the 2000s and 2010s has been a glorious mess in the age of the internet, with its avant garde styles, eclectic mix of music and chaotic meme humour. It’s wonderful in its own right but we are also a nostalgic generation, longing for the big trendsetting moves of the 80s and the psychedelia of the 70s (without all the racism and sexism of course). But many of us miss a time we’ve only ever heard of through record players and hit HBO shows: the classy, jazzy, martini club legacy of the 60s. Specifically, the swingin’ Rat Pack music of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr, Peter Lawford and Joey Bishop.
Synesthesia is a condition where a person’s senses are mixed up in a way that the stimulation of one senses lead to the sense impression of another. People with synesthesia, or synesthetes, are able to either ‘see’ music, ‘hear’ colours’, and more! (and sometimes even all of the above). Synesthesia then, is the perfect title for a record whose approach fusion is a wholesome endeavour of appreciation and experimentation, instead of an empty marriage of sound.
