Thread Name: Do you see musical notes as colors?
Subject: RE: Do you see musical notes as colors?
Say a prayer to St. Synaesthesia. Or paint one perhaps.

Has any person blessed (or cursed?) with this condition/ ability ever painted a piece of music, or analysed old paintings in terms of the music of the time? Is the colour mapping consistent from one synaesthesic to another? What happens with chords, or drums? And do people get other crossovers, to smell, taste, textures, or perhaps all at once?
