What happens when composers and musicians hear in colors, shapes, or personalities? How might these extraordinary experiences affect a composer’s writing, or a musician’s interpretation of a piece?

On Oct 6th, join Professor Psyche Loui of Wesleyan University and Project LENS to explore the sound world  as perceived by the synesthetic brain.
