Some people report seeing colours when they hear certain keys or notes in music. They probably have synesthesia – its definition? A condition in which the stimulation of one sense leads to the automatic and involuntary experience of a second. You can test yourself too to see if you have it.
The 20th century Hungarian composer also associated sounds with colours and shapes. “I feel that all letters have a colour,” he said. "I do not have perfect pitch, so when I say that C minor has a rusty red-brown colour and D minor is brown this does not come from the pitch but from the letters C and D."
