Hearing colours, seeing sounds

Would you describe a B played on the cello an ominous dark shape made of synthetic fur with teeth embedded in its back? Or does it have a claggy peanut butter middle with chocolate rippled over it? People with synaesthesia literally ‘see’ music in colour and movement. Animator Samantha Moore from the University of Wolverhampton, Jamie Ward from University College London and New London Orchestra musicians have developed a project looking at the way in which synaesthetes react visually to music. Artist, Lynette Kay, a synaesthete, will also show her paintings inspired by music. This event is organised by EDAB and the New London Orchestra.
