You appear to be quite a thinker and somebody aware of what you're experiencing. It reminds me of the people in /r/intp. I realize the mbti is another model you probably find entertaining as a starting point in understanding yourself and others, but not an endpoint that will explain anything. I too see many leaks in this model. If you're one of these people who ruminate a lot, I hope you consider it as one of your strengths. People in /r/intp seem to like staying in their thoughts, but I'm inclined to believe a thinker who brings balance to his/her experience by rolling with whim or instinct, - going with the flow - sometimes is a person bringing all cylinders to fire, both sides of the brain if you will, and can achieve goals more easily than people who only feel and people who only think. I bet you'd be very entertained by Sonia Choquette's book, Trust Your Vibes. I emphasize "entertained". You will be frustrated at the lack of science, but at the same time, she encourages experimentation with what you sense without proof. It's your thinking mind that will protect you from doing anything stupid.

Alexithymia is a scary word; I'll admit to never having seen it prior to your using it. I did give it a quick look at Wikipedia. With that in mind, what I would suggest is that if you don't feel anything, perhaps, it's because there is nothing you should feel. Maybe it's an issue for people who tell you things like this. Those same people also know clearly that it's what you do that demonstrates your values and shows your true colors. I'm sure you'd agree that everybody isn't meant to be expressive or posessed by moods; the world needs stable people who aren't easily moved, and your being a scientist suggests you are gifted and not flawed. That quality can be a real gift to humanity; not a psychological problem. I admit to not knowing you and, perhaps, showing my ignorance. Anyway, perhaps, these are things you may find helpful to consider as you face your tomorrows nonetheless.

No vocals here (quick skip if you were looking for them).

I make electronic/cinematic synthwave music as PatternShift. I have an eclectic set of influences and bleed across a genres a bit. Best matches by genre preference would probably be:

(main links are YouTube)

  • Soundtrack/theme: PatternShift - "Walking the Manifold" or SoundCloud
  • Chill: PatternShift - "Departure" or SoundCloud
  • Straightforward Synthwave: PatternShift - "The Physical Option" or SoundCloud
  • Ambient: PatternShift - "Orbital Resonance" or SoundCloud
  • Cyberpunk: PatternShift - "Exsurgent" or SoundCloud

    I just released my EP May 1 (technically an album on several services due to ambient outro and bonus track). It's my first release after getting back into independent music production, this time with synths/electronic music. I'm a long time musician (play a few instruments) and wanted to be a soundtrack composer as a kid, spent some time as a music comp major in college, etc. The songs take thematic inspiration from both science fiction and science, reflecting my background and interest/involvement in both.

    A bit of the story on "Walking the Manifold" -- the title is a reference to "Walking the Pattern" in the Amber books by Roger Zelazny. But it's mapped onto a real scientific concept - in machine learning, the Manifold Hypothesis is a way of explaining how deep neural nets work. For an over-simplified explanation, one type of manifold, in topology, can be thought of as a mapping from a high dimensional space to a lower space, where some properties hold that make those spaces equivalent in certain ways. An OK analogy for this is a street address -- it's a 1D mapping (go N far on this street) by which you can find a house in a 3D world.

    The thing is, that's a way that music works as well. Music is wired into the part of our brains that processes things emotionally. The machinery from our evolutionary past, hooked up to animal cries and calls, etc. We feel this raw emotional stuff in our brains (and bodies as well), and we can encode and decode all of that in music - notes and chords and beats and timbres -- and then other people can decode it!

    The way that works has gotten personal for me. I have a son with autism who is really into particular sounds, spinning, etc. (common topics of autistic perseveration). Before diving back into music and writing this album, I found and read a book on Language, Music, and Autism and was blown away by a small fact tucked away in there: for autistic people, a lot of the deficits in encoding emotion into and out of natural language are just not there with music. That is, there are often no emotional deficits in processing music in autism. It's that effective as a medium for communicating things emotionally (possibly due to the degree of redundancy in its signal, versus normal language).

    Anyways, I've mostly played my cards close to my chest re: the meaning in the music as I want people to find their own things in it, as what they discover is IMO just as valid as what I tried to put there intentionally. But I think a little bit of story is justified in this case. If you're into it, it's on the majority of streaming platforms, etc. and it's all linked on my landing page.

I had to choose between Zyklus and Bone Alphabet. Steven Schick, the guy performing is truly impressive! His book is one of my favorite reads.

My uncle wrote a biography of Townes Van Zandt. It's always weird to see/hear about him because I always think of my uncle, who plays guitar and banjo and just about every stringed instrument ever. He loves the guy and so he wrote a book about it, and I always thought that was pretty damn cool. Link to his book if anyone's curious.

She was a housekeeper in the Seeger (yes that Seeger) household when she was "discovered" by Ruth Seeger when Libba picked up a guitar and started playing (for the first time since she was a child).

She is one of my (2.5 y/o) son's favorite musicians and we often sing Freight Train at bedtime. There is a charming children's book about her.

Yeah I know - if you like this stuff, check out the companion book http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/1938265084

This week I have been re-reading Ted Gioia's excellent book Delta Blues. It has become one of my favorite music books ever. This old stuff isn't for everyone, but I can't get enough of it lately.

A producer sometimes makes a big difference in the end product. A big example of this was George Martin's role with the Beatles. It's arguable whether they would have gotten the exact tone in music had Martin not have been behind it all. Reading Here There And Everywhere by George Emerick I grew to appreciate not just the producer's role in music but that of the sound engineers. It's all a cohesive product and the better producers out there are known for what they bring to the table. Hell, even radiohead couldn't get through "In Rainbows" without eventually going back to Nigel Godrich. With electronic music, the influence that someone could have as a producer is magnified, since most of the time there is no band. Hip-hop producers like RJD2, Madlib and J Dilla especially are known for their unique sound and are highly sought after.
