Connection Colour and Sound

Plato, Aristotle and Newton all found links between different musical tones and shades on the colour spectrum. Because songs often carry specific emotional themes of optimism and energy, or nostalgia and regret, they may also create associations with very specific colours.

    Listen to music that is composed in major key and write down all the colours you see. Now listen to music composed in minor key and do the same, writing down a list of colours the music makes you imagine. What colours did you associate most strongly with each song? Do you associate those same colours with the mood the songs evoke?
