Synesthesia Read

Come see the music

To celebrate the 85th anniversary of the Orchestre Symphonique de Montreal, we appealed to people who have an extraordinary gift. It’s called synesthesia. Synesthesia is a phenomenon whereby people experience an additional sense when the rest of us only experience one. For example, a synesthete may see musical notes as colors. With the help of synesthetes and sound engineers, we created a tool that translates music into colors. We developed "visual symphonies" to demonstrate the magic of synesthesia.
