Visualization of Music from Synesthesian

In auditory-tactile synaesthesia, certain sounds can induce sensations in parts of the body. For example, someone with auditory-tactile synesthesia may experience that hearing a specific word feels like touch in one specific part of the body or may experience that certain sounds can create a sensation in the skin without being touched.

Synesthesian Artist Making Artwork Base of Music Response

Synesthesia artist Dillon James sees colors and patterns in his vision when he hears sounds. He has a type of synesthesia known as “Chromesthesia”. So, he has merged those colors with the faces of the people he’s painting. “I do all types of artwork, but people tend to want paintings of voices. I love being able to show people in my art what I see when I hear sound. It’s sharing of myself at the deepest level.”
