ASMR *contemporary music ensemble* [tapping] [scratching] [brushing] [whispering] -
ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response) is an experience, often described as a "tingling sensation" that starts on your scalp and moves down the back of your neck and upper spine. There are countless YouTube videos in which ASMR artists try to trigger the tingles by using amplified sounds of whispering, touching objects or materials, eating, caressing a pet, or by typical roleplay like getting a haircut at the hairdresser or getting certain parts of your body checked up by a doctor. Fake intimacy, postpornography, and recontextualisation of everyday life objects are enacted to cause pleasure and relaxation.
