Is anybody else here sometimes really scared of music? I can be horrified by a song alone if it unnerves me enough. Pianos are the worst for this. I've had nightmares based solely on piano music where I've woken up in sweats and had to turn the light on I was so disturbed. At one point I was terrified of the music in 2 girls 1 cup. I stayed up until my eyes wouldn't let me anymore after hearing it. As soon as I fell asleep I had a nightmare where it was playing.
Anybody able to relate at all? If so feel free to post any music that scares the fuck out of you
Misophonia, literally "hatred of sound", is a rarely diagnosed disorder, commonly thought to be of neurological origin, in which negative emotions (anger, fright, hatred, disgust) are triggered by specific sounds.
My misophonic tenancies feel uncomfortable to the point of triggering a major fight or flight response, along with unwanted sexual stimulation. The piano triggers more psychologically stomach turning and emotionally unsettling feelings. Not saying it's totally not the case, but they feel separate to me
I'm not going to assume it is the case at risk of creating a false memory, but it certainly feels like there's a very deep dark secret behind that piano. That's pretty much exactly how I'd describe its scare factor
This song used to really terrify me as a kid and I STILL feel a deep sense of dread if ever I happen to hear it nowadays https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WSFDCmmsqEI I don't have any rational explanation for it. I know it's particularly the heavy strings part and the confiiiiiide iiiinnn meeee vocals, but I don't know why. I get this horrible feeling of becoming elderly and close to death and just...dread.
Musician here. Spoopy music related kinda.
>Playing guitar in old attic practice space
>Looking for capo to play sick folk jams
>Hear snare drum vibrating
>Snare vibrations sound super weird
>Hear what sounds like GEEEETTT OUTTTT
>Nope the fuck out
Probably didn't describe it the best, but I lit out of the attic like a rocket.
It's apparently a symptom when misophonia gets really strong. But it's mainly when I hear family member chews food. I'm also a mouth fetishist and a voraraphile, so it feels really uncomfortable and a little violating even if they aren't actually violating me
Nah. I thrive in the axious nature of piano music. In fact, sadness and fear are my go to inspirations for composition. I cannot get enough of it. But certain sounds and certain chords really fucking bother me.
