A Novel Idea: Hearing in Color
Join us on a journey into the experiences of a synesthete, and learn what it is like to hear in color.

Synesthesia is a very rare neurological condition in which one or more sensory pathways become intertwined. When one is sense activated, another unrelated sense is activated at the same time.

For Chris Thomas (a composer), the experience of hearing sound activates an involuntary swirl of colors and textures. The vivid sensation of hearing music in color is a blessing and a curse. While synesthesia offers a unique artistic perspective, the involuntary nature of the condition can be a constant distraction.
