It is not just the eyes that see color. Some people see color when they hear music. This phenomenon, when a sense is stimulated and another sense experiences a sensation, is called synesthesia.

This is what Brahms Capriccio, opus 76 no. 2 might look/sound like to a synesthetic. (more or less; at least the colors if not the shapes):

via Everyone Forever


Me and my dad, c. 1971

After all these years, this is still my favorite music video.

Have a great week, y'all!
