Synaesthesia was another project for Bill Leeb and Rhys Fulber of Delerium to explore their ambient ideas. Lush strings and tribal chants all flavouring the overall sound. The sound of Synaesthesia is basically the continuation of Delerium's boding ambient basis of their early albums such as <i>"Stone Tower"</i> before their gradual shift of genre towards trip-hop - the same ambient music that was released under the Delerium moniker around the time of <i>"Semantic Spaces"</i>. But wait, the credits say "all songs by R. Deckard". Now who the hell is…? Initially both Bill and Rhys maintained that the songs were written by the mysterious Mr Deckard. By the time of the release of their third album <i>"Ephemeral"</i> it was made known that contractual agreements with other labels meant that a pseudonymous individual had to be created, and being that Bill is a big fan of Bladerunner why not call him R. Deckard! Leeb is now credited as main writer, with Fulber as programming & production.
Synaesthesia released 3 albums, Embody (1994), Desideratum, a double CD (1995) and Ephemeral (1997) which was written by Leeb and Fulber, and mixed by Peterson. The compilation "The Collection" came out in 2001, but did only consist of bad artwork and tracks released on the 3 studio albums.
