Music sparks the all of the senses. Hearing music and reading music are obvious. Feeling music, through powerful bass amps or through the warmth of a string orchestra also counts. It has been studied that music in restaurants can amplify certain tastes. And those afflicted with synesthesia have the ability to actually smell sounds, as music stimulates sensory and cognitive pathways.
But for all of the "standard" senses, it is the more metaphysical ones that make music so magical; memory, imagination, and inspiration to name a few. This episode of Wind & Rhythm explores the many sensations of music.
