Can you hear color?

January 28, 2011 § 5 Comments

Music triggers feelings and images. And  not only images, but also shapes, colors, forms. Synesthetic experiences provoke our senses. When we  listen to music, we see colors and shapes that arise, move around, and disappear. And I fell lucky that I am not the only one who sees blocks of colors, when I listen to John Coltrane‘s music; so does Michal Levy, artist and jazz musician, who has created this totally ‘synesthetic’ video, inspired by Coltrane’s Giant Steps.
