The correspondence between sound and colour was as well subject of Wassily Kandinsky's studies. His book 'Concerning the Spiritual in Art' combined colours and sounds. So has red the sound of a violin and dark red of a tuba. Black and white have no sound. And yellow has the sound of a trumpet or fanfare. He also combined the colours with shape and emotions. Yellow is a triangle and represents anger. Btw, it is interesting that quite a few persons with absolute pitch are able to see sounds as colours.

Inspired by Scriabin's Prometheus and Kandinsky, Giovanna Cerise has created Synthesia. Giovanna: "The boxes represent the keyboard of a piano. The piano keys are colored and seem to move. Everything is connected to the concept of synesthesia. Kandinsky and Synesthesia links Scriabrin. Each key has a color and a certain state of mind, as Scriabin does in his Prometheus. You can enter every key which has a predominant colour ."
I was overwhelmed by the breathking beauty of the work. You will enjoy it. Can you hear the colours?
