Thread Name: Perfect Pitch
Subject: Colour synesthesia
I remember as a child routinely "seeing" a major colour show when listening to music, most extravagant with classical music, much tamer for folk-style. I'm sure I was under 10 years old. It wouldn't totally override whatever I was doing, e.g. I could still pay attention to my piano teacher when she was showing me something for example. I'm pretty sure I didn't see it when concentrating on something else, like when listening to music while drawing. But all that experience is long gone; I hadn't thought about since I noticed it way back when--I wonder if it's recoverable? And I definitely don't have perfect pitch, nor am I aware of having it as child but I can't say for sure.
