Music Gives Me Chills
I heavily follow the Grammys news and articles so the other day I stumbled upon this article posted below. Yes, music certainly does give me chills and it has often. I'm not saying it does every day or every time but maybe this is the way I seek to be around it all the time. If I'm not out at a show it is on at home. I've felt them listening to a song a home but that is rare. The intensity usually happens during a performance. Maybe these "chills" are the reason I feel like I have to do this. I get moments when I'm photographing and I just feel in the zone. It's just me and the musician(s). Everything else like the lighting, venue, crowds, etc are just props and all part of the story. But there have been moments where everything is going great and the music is so intense. I can see it, hear it and feel it in my entire body.
So back to the article. I guess not everyone experiences these moments. Has this happened to you?

You know the feeling. Listening to certain songs can deliver an experience beyond explanation, where all your body knows to do is shiver in the presence of this grand emotional moment. The hair on your arms stands tall and the moment takes over. In France they call this "frissons." Here, we call it the chills.
Evidently, this physical phenomenon in reaction to music doesn't happen to everyone. Studies show those of us who experience the physical phenomenon of musically induced chills usually have more active imaginations and reflect more deeply on emotions. Turns out that not only does your skin tingle, but brain scans show chill-prone individuals may be hard-wired for stronger emotions. Read the FULL ARTICLE HERE at GRAMMY.com
