    Default spine tinglers

    https://www.futilitycloset.com/2019/...pine-tinglers/ In a 2009 study of responses to music, neuroscientist Valorie Salimpoor and her colleagues asked participants to bring in 3 to 5 pieces of “intensely pleasurable instrumental music to which they experience chills.” Then they measured their physiological response as they listened. They found that the “chills” effect is real — when the subjects reported that their pleasure at the music was highest, so was their sympathetic nervous system activity, a measure of emotional arousal.

    One byproduct of the study is a list of more than 200 chills-inducing moments in music of various genres, with precise timestamps of the crucial points:
    Composer/Artist Title Chills
    Beethoven Piano Sonata No. 17 in D Minor (“The Tempest”) 5:33
    Mahler Symphony No. 1 – Movement 4 5:42, 9:57, 15:15
    Charles Mingus Fables of Faubus 0:20, 7:10
    Stan Getz Round Midnight 1:26
    Pink Floyd Shine on You Crazy Diamond 5:00
    Phish You Enjoy Myself 10:50
    Cannonball Adderley One for Daddy-O 0:40
    Los Angeles Guitar Quartet Congan 2:09
    Crowfoot Larks in May 0:10, 2:00
    Howard Shore The Breaking of the Fellowship (film score) 0:10, 0:55
    Dave Matthews Band #34 1:40
    The Dissociatives Paris Circa 2007 Slash 08 1:30
    Brad Mehldau Knives Out 4:45, 7:25
    Explosions in the Sky First Breath After Coma 2:25, 3:30, 8:10


    The full list is here (Table_S1). (Note too that the timestamps relate to a particular recording, so consider them approximate in e.g. classical music.)

    I kind of thought the research project might have been to rate the relative intensity of the rush for a top ten spine tinglers

    I've been skeptical of this phenomenon for a while now. seems like a very superficial response to music. Woebot posted some study on his blog where the researcher was bragging about being able to get chills like 20 times in a song or something--and obviously this wasn't a guy who was all that into music. which to me says it all.

    pacing your room in a state of amazement >>>> "chills"

    You mean he experienced chills himself or that he could come up with a piece of music that would trigger chills in other people?

    It won't be long before someone cracks the pattern for triggering them tbh, the musical equivalent of ASMR.

    A pop song mapped to the human brain, specific trigger points littered throughout. You could do it with audiobooks too.

    I remember reading a Reddit thread on who the worst fans to deal with when working at an outdoor festival/concert are and more than one person brought up Dave Matthews Band.
