Thread Name: Do you see musical notes as colors?
Subject: RE: Do you see musical notes as colors?
When in Music school, a pal who happened to be blind told me told me that he sees notes as colors. He remembered colors from before he was blinded. He had always seen each specific note as a certain color. He is not the only blind person who told me this. Interestingly, the blind persons who told me about this had quite similar concepts of which color specific notes appeared to be.
There has been much theorizing about Music & color for a few thousand years, & it is always fascinating to me.
