Cindybrain_small Who says phrenology is dead? Ok, most people don't believe your character can be figured out from bumps on your head... ...but this practice of diagramming separate areas of your personality on a "brain map" has been updated in a way we think does tell you a lot about a person. While phrenologists believed that different areas of your brain held traits, like your tendency to get into fights, or your memory of things, Cindy feels that what she calls her mind, is like a house with different rooms, each room a very different space with a different sonic landscape. She invites you on her narrated tour of Cindy's Brain.

Review

I think this piece has different emotions I'm assuming because shes showing the different parts of her brain from her point of view. I love her part two of her brain the sounds of her little brother makes and how happy he makes her. She reminds me of myself and how my life flows sometimes.
