"Franz Liszt, the19th century composer, pianist, and conductor, saw colors in his mind's eye when he heard music? He experienced a "rare phenomenon called color hearing, (in which) the senses become crossed and every musical sound is shadowed by colorful, formless visual imagery. And so, Liszt would instruct an orchestra, 'Please gentlemen, a little bluer if you please. This key demands it.'"

"...it has to do with internal linkshamanism that is based on the use of internal linkDMT in plants.  DMT is a neurotransmitter that, when ingested and allowed to come to rest in unusually large amounts in the synapses of the brain, allows one to see sound, so that one can use the voice to produce not musical compositions, but pictorial and visual compositions.  This, to my mind, indicates that we're on the cusp of some kind of internal linkevolutionary transition in the internal linklanguage-forming area, so that we are going to go from a language that is heard to a language that is seen, through a shift in interior internal linkprocessing.  The language will still be made of sound, but it will be processed as the carrier of the visual impression.  This is actually being done by shamans in the Amazon.  The songs they sing sound as they do in order to look a certain way.  They are not musical compositions as we're used to thinking of them.  They are pictorial art that is caused by audio signals."

To some it is evident that every sound gives forth a color equivalent. Likewise, the vibratory movements of musical notes and phrases combine to express meaningful patterns or shapings, called internal linkarchetypes, which reside in a superphysical field of thought and feeling. Both the colors and forms of music can be observed clairvoyantly. In addition, some persons "feel" the colors of musical works, and scientific advances have expanded to give us new directions toward demonstrating the colors of music. The Russian composer Alexander Scriabin envisioned a internal linktime when a cosmic color organ would reveal simultaneously the colors and formations of every piece of music as it was being played. The study of the relationship of color animation and sound is called synesthesia by some researchers, though the term implies relationships among other senses. I am sure this science will be developed further in our lifetimes. Both Leopold Stokowski, the famed maestro of symphony orchestras, and Walt internal linkDisney were interested in the combination of color and sound, and together they produced the great movie classic _Fantasia_, which is an animated union of color, music and movement, a dramatic  representation of the energies released through sound and vibration.

The Russian novelist Vladimir Nabokov, one of this century's few genuinely synaesthetic writers, shared with his mother the faculty of coloured hearing. In his autobiography _Speak internal linkMemory_, Nabokov describes the colours which the letter-sounds always conjured for  him: "The long a of the English alphabet ... has for me the tint of  weathered wood, but a French a evokes polished ebony. The black  group also includes... hard g (vulcanized rubber) and r (a sooty rag being ripped)."

Well, what I discovered -- and I certainly wasn't the first to discover it -- in the Amazon in  the early '70s, was the people in these tribal groups get together and they take Ayahuasca and  their habit is to sing to make music, vocal music. They have no internal linkdrums because in the Amazon the humidity is so high that no drum head could remain stretched more than a few hours. So the people use rattles and leaf shakers and vocal sound to produce what we would think of as  beautiful tribal music. But what's interesting about this beautiful tribal music is after each performance, when you sit and listen to the people criticise the performance, they don't say that it sounded very good, they will inevitably make comments like 'I like the part with the silver bars and the blue dots, but I thought that the yellow could have been more internal linkintense,  especially where it faded into the polka dot brown and grey section'. In other words, when  you listen to these people in these native contexts criticise these performances, you realise that  for them it's a visual performance, it's sound which, under the influence of these plants, is  actually beheld, actually seen by the people within this culture.
