“I have some form of synaesthesia. I always have music in my head’- Nile Rodgers

Nile Rodgers, musician and producer, who has collaborated with many artists, from Madonna to David Bowie explains how he always has music in his head.

“…. Another thing happened that I’ve only talked about once or twice in my life,” he breezily continues of that fateful night. “I have some form of synaesthesia because I always have music in my head. It drives my girlfriend crazy because I go home and have to turn the television on because I can’t sleep in a quiet environment. Right now, talking to you is the distraction from the composition going on in my head. When I went to that disco, it was the first time I heard continuous music just like the one in my head. I didn’t know how to explain it to my girlfriend. It was a miracle to me.”
