I thought of this blog a few years ago, but never really got into the whole “blogging” thing. I dabbled with blogger for a while, and I still maintain that blog somewhat, but not with any ardent desire to post continually. This is the blog I was born to write.
This is the blog I share with you now.
Some explanation is in order, I suppose …
“Frissonic.” Where does it come from? Allow Miriam and Webster to explain.
Inflected Form(s): plural frissons \-ˈsōⁿ(z)\
Etymology: French, shiver, from Old French friçon, from Late Latin friction-, frictio, from Latin, literally, friction (taken in Late Latin as derivative of frigēre to be cold)
a brief moment of emotional excitement : shudder, thrill
1 : utilizing, produced by, or relating to sound waves <sonic altimeter>; broadly : of or involving sound <sonic pollution>
2 : having a frequency within the audibility range of the human ear —used of waves and vibrations
3 : of, relating to, or being the speed of sound in air or about 761 miles per hour (1224 kilometers per hour) at sea level at 59°F (15°C)
So there you have it, folks. Music that makes you shiver and shake. Frissonic.
I’ll write about bands I like or dislike, concerts, emotions elicited through music … whatever. If you like what you read, post a comment. If you don’t, that’s fine–your opinion is yours, and I’m okay with tasteful comments contradicting my point of view.
Let’s get started, shall we?
