New Insight into People Who Taste Words For most of us, the boundaries between our bodily senses are clear-cut and rigid. But for a few rare individuals, the demarcation between vision and hearing, or between taste and touch, are less solid, with one bleeding into the other. These people have a condition called "synesthesia," in which two or more of the senses are crossed. Some see colors when listening to music, while others associate tastes with shapes or words with colors. New York Gets Destroyed, 8-bit Style Imagine the apocalypse. Now imagine characters and elements from '80s games carrying it out. This is exactly what this crazy video portrays, and being a classic games geek myself, if this sort of thing were to happen in real life, I'm not sure whether I'd run or marvel at the sight. It's all there — Pacman, Tetris, Arkanoid.
Caldera por @ orchidanimation A young girl abandons her medication and the bleak city in which she lives, to explore a mystical oceanic cove. Premiering at SXSW in 2012, Evan Viera’s dark animation Caldera is the tale of young girl who finds her life in a precarious position after taking measures into her own hands. Realizing she can not live in either the fantastical and haunting world of psychosis or in the marginalizing society that mandates her medication, Caldera takes its protagonist on a journey into a dreamlike world as she attempts to deal with her psychotic disorder. Inspired by his father’s struggle with schizoaffective disorder, in which his delusional episodes saw him dance on the rings of Saturn, speak with angels, and flee from demons, Viera’s deeply personal film attempts to explore the battles faced by those striving to live with their afflictions, as they try to find their place in society and deal with the effects of medication.

Auto-Tune Music Software Corrects Singers Bad Notes & Wavering Pitch Missed that high note? With Auto-Tune, that's OK. Like a spellchecker or photo editing software can save us from our mistakes, the audio program Auto-Tune can correct a singer's bad notes and wavering pitch. Although the program is best known for the singing-through-a-fan, robotic vocal style that has dominated pop radio in recent years with stars like Lady Gaga, T-Pain and countless others, Auto-Tune is in fact widely used in the studio and at concerts to make artists' sound pitch-perfect. "Quite frankly, [use of Auto-Tune] happens on almost all vocal performances you hear on the radio," said Marco Alpert, vice president of marketing for Antares Audio Technologies, the company that holds the trademark and patent for Auto-Tune.
