Yeah, that's the one. I hadn't heard it before either, ever. I had found a place online with an excellent quality recording of all three parts of the concerto. All three are ear candy. I can't find it now though. I emailed the radio station that played it to see if they would give me the info on the piece they played. I remember them saying it was rare so I'm hoping they will help me get a copy of it.

Let us know if you find out what specific recording it was. Would be interested in ordering that, if it's available.
In the secret space of dreams
Where I dreaming lay amazed
When the secrets all are told
And the petals all unfold
When there was no dream of mine
You dreamed of me.

Will do. I'm going to write the station again this weekend sometime.

ASMR videos never really did it for me.  I don't know if its the same thing but I do get a similar "Braingasm" sort of thing.  It only happens to me when something awe inspiring happens.  Mostly supreme synchronicity with a song in a music video or when when a song hits a certain part I really like.  I can feel my scalp sort of tighten up as all the air on my head and down my neck stands on end.  Sometimes the electric feeling in my head can go all the way down my back and into my hands and feet.

That's the only way I ever get those feelings as well. I love a good song that'll do that.

I'm not sure if I get ASMR or not.  There seem to be a number of similar (yet distinct?) things.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autonomous_sensory_meridian_response
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frisson
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cold_chill

The response to music sounds most like frisson.

One song that comes to mind for this is Journey - Feeling That Way/Anytime (especially the crescendo at 5:00 - 5:15)
: YouTube Player • show

Does this work for anyone?


There is another sensation I get sometimes (distinct from the three listed above), that causes me to shudder/shiver but without the cold sensation of cold chill.

Yea the Frisson wiki described my experience perfectly!
