"No ASMR"


Have we had a chat about this deal around these parts?

I don't think so. Doubt it would go well.

I think back in the old Oink thread, there was a brief discussion about digital audio drugging.

That's called "binaural beats" -- we discussed it most directly here:
http://www.strangefamousrecords.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=36208

The concept is that when your ears are each hearing a distinct tone (as in headphones where one ear has a 50Hz tone and the other ear has a 60Hz tone) your brain will attempt to reconcile these two tones into a single sound and as a result you will hear a tone that oscillates over a 10Hz range as the audio processing centers of your brain try to "balance" how much of the two sources you hear. This oscillation is the "beat" -- and the idea is that (because of something called "entrainment") different beats will produce different neurological effects in your brain. I've never had much effect from listening to them, although if I were the sort of person who meditated I would consider using them as a meditation aid.

ASMR videos don't aim for a "drugging" effect. They often make use of a binaural technology, but it's something different, a "3D audio" -- exactly like the video we discussed in the "virtual barbershop" video linked in this thread:
http://www.strangefamousrecords.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=50179

Here, the stereo playback going to each channel of your headphones is coming from a different microphone; this audio has either been doped in post production or recorded by microphones situated in something shaped like the human ear. Played back into your own headphones, you get a much more distinct sense of space, distance, direction, etc.

I had nine more paragraphs on the intended function of ASMR videos but I think I'll hold them back for now. This thread isn't the right place to get into it in any case.

So you get ASMR then?

I do. I wish everyone did. It's like a cheat code for life. Stress? Insomnia? Bam. No drugs required.

I do recognize that it'd be weird as fuck from an outsiders perspective though.

That binaural weed didn't work for me either, Mark.
Glad I didn't pay for it. Listening to Snoop Dogg would probably get me higher.

Was The Who's Quadrophenia ahead of it's time?
Seems like it'd be considered ASMR.

On the remastered Black Sabbath albums.....
Bill Ward's drumming is very noticeably stereo.
I like listening to it in a car.

Chills/frisson from music, even when caused by stereo effects, are generally considered to be something distinct from ASMR. I get both and for me they are very similar sensations, but frisson is more intense, shorter-lived, and is invigorating rather than relaxing.

I didn't even know ASMR was a thing until I watched that video.

I can do it by rolling my eyes back in my head. Pretty awkward in social situations so I only really "invoke" it when I'm sitting at my computer or listening to music or something. For the longest time (pretty much up until now) I just wondered if everyone else did this or if I was just the only one.

To someone who has never experienced ASMR this probably sounds like crazy talk.
