There was a programme about perception of time on Radio 4 last week, featuring an experiment in which they played very quick sounds to people being given an adrenalin rush by being put on a roller-coaster ride (or something like that).

When you inhale nitrous oxide, sounds become both weirdly stacatto and 'echoey', in ways that were reminiscent to me of what you hear when you dream, a multitude of frequencies and wavelengths.

Almost similar to what you hear when you are going under anaesthetic, and the voices of doctors and nurses echo and fade away. It absolutely reminded me of some of the effects I remember hearing as a child watching old horror/mystery movies to portray dream/nightmare sequences.

It got me wondering if some early soundmen were using their memory of some hallucinogens or similar to good effect.

And yes, I've inhaled N2O.

Edited for Bondee's correction.

I offered to try some nitrous oxide when we were having the tour of the labour ward. It was horrible, I did not like it at all. I got a sensation as if I was about to faint and my mouth felt like it was stuck together. I took one small breath mumbled something and put it down. I didn't ask to use it when I was in labour either.
