Thoughts on MRIs

I had an MRI today. It’s been about five years or something since I’ve had one, and I forgot everything about them. I remembered you had to lie in a sterile looking tube but I forgot about the ridiculous sound and the tingling sensations that make you feel like your limbs are moving without you asking them to. The doctor asked me what radio station I wanted to listen to and I didn’t know any radio so he put on classic rock. Oddly though I found myself listening to the excruciating MRI screeches and feeling my body hum. I focussed on the glimpses of semi-beautiful sound I could find in vibrating cocoon I laid in. It just sounded like the basis for some noise band’s basement recordings.

In case you don’t know or remember, go here and check it out. It was a really trippy experience. I felt like my body was not mine and had to keep repeating in my head “Don’t move, don’t move,” but honestly don’t know if I could have if I tried. Though I kept feeling like parts of me were moving, my kneecaps, my thumb. I wonder if any one has sampled MRI sounds yet for their music, because that would be kindof awesome.
