Unbridled Perception of Colour

Thank you for all the compliments on the blog on colour. BUT did you know that there are some people who can see the Colour of Music?

Chromesthesia or sound-to-color synesthesia is a type of synesthesia in which heard sounds automatically and involuntarily evoke an experience of color. (Wikipedia)

It's like a blending of the senses.

I really don't know what a person with chromesthesia actually sees when they hear music but this short video clip claims this is what this musician with chromesthesia perceives visually.

Perhps if you know someone with this condition you could ask them to describe how they see the colour of music.

In the meantime for those of us ordinary folk please enjoy and relax to this wonderful video on The Colour of Music.

And a warning: this is a creative work of art set to music not a scientific example of chromesthesia.
