Hmmm - I'm not sure! I guess I never notice because I take it for granted. My partner understands synaesthesia and she can relate to a degree - but in a different way to me - maybe more numerical. My numbers do have colours but nowhere near as strong as days.

Anyway, with music, I guess if I hear a song that I like, in addition to liking the music, there are colours or textures to go with it, which adds to the appeal. For example I was woken up by the new Pet Shop Boys single on the radio the other day and that had a lasting effect on me for the rest of the day.

I've been making my own music recently, which is quite a colourful experience I have to say!
