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.
Many of Messiaen’s compositions – such as Oiseaux Exotiques, L'ascension, and Couleurs de la cite celeste – are directly based upon his trying to “produce pictures” via sound, writing specific notes to produce specific colour sequences and blends.
