Something that I don’t often talk about is music and how it can affect us and spur on bouts of head tingles. This seems to work for ASMR Type A and B experiencers – even among the ASMR team.
I’ve often seen some posts on the wall over at the ASMR Group which talk about music tracks and music videos that act as triggers. Some say it’s the electronica, ambient, or orchestral scores that often do it.
It’s not something that I experience a lot. My “braingasms” are usually triggered by sounds or voices – not really instruments. But that’s not so say that listening to the lyrics, and the voice of the person singing, doesn’t trigger it. Because it does once in a while.
One example I can think of is years ago when I listened to a track which was on a sample CD handed out by Musica or some similar store. It had on it a number of samples from famous songs from past decades. One of these in particular was a track named “The Letters” by Leonard Cohen, off of his album, Dear Heather.
Apart from the annoying voice of the narrator or commentator cutting in early during the track, just listening to the soft lyrics and talking during the song triggered it something wicked for me. It was amazing.
I still have the sample track. But instead of uploading it, I decided that I would rather just direct you to the page at Amazon where you can preview the track for free. It takes less time (for me anyway), and you don’t have to listen to that idiot cutting in like I had to.
If you’re interested though, you can buy the full track. Not sure if it will work for you, but give it a try. It certainly did something for me. If it does trigger ASMR, you might also want to look into some of his albums. I certainly will. I initially thought he was black because his voice was so smooth, but Cohen is a Jewish name as far as I know.
