Synesthesia

The gang at Yours Truly are starting a project called Synesthesia and I have jumped on board to help produce future installments of the series. So what is it? I’ll let Momo Ishiguro from Yours Truly explain it!

synesthesia

Even if you’re not synesthetic (a neurological condition that produces the rare ability to experience separate senses simultaneously), there are times when colors seep through songs and music wafts out of otherwise quiet objects. A certain chord has a blue-gray tint; a certain sculpture sounds like waves crashing on the shore.

In this new series, Yours Truly asks some of the most visual people around to fill us in on the links between sound and vision by paying homage to a sonic artist who has helped them hear colors and sing shapes.
