    >he cant hear green
    lmao ngmi

    But for real it feels more like wires crossed or something than "im in touch with the cosmos" or some shit, at least in my case. Some notes can have a colour or mental picture but for me its usually more about timbre of the instrument or sound. A clarinet is a nice blue, a trumpet is usually red/orange, a crash cymbal is like ripples on a pond. It can help writing things when your trying to get something across but I tend to try and listen to the entire thing and build a suitable mental picture from that and I think most people can do that. It must be different parts of the brain because I can kind of go between to two, and ive encountered more people that understand "it sounds like a ship in the ocean" then "its a violet triangle". I found out pretty early telling someone their part should be more green doesnt help get my point across. Some people associate it with numbers and smells too so maybe Im just a basic bitch.

    Heres an album cover I painted that to me is a perfect representation of the album, that came perfectly formed in my mind in a flash thinking about the music driving.

      but are the colors and notes consistent with op

        Not in my case, the colours dont follow the chromatic scale, eg red to orange to yellow, they are more random
        in regards to association. Again, it feels more like crossed wire than anything that logical, but maybe others have a different experience, its all pretty personal. Honestly if you can picture color in your head you may be able to train it with said notes, but the road block if its not innate is ear training the notes. Alot of people do 1 note (usually C because the C major scale has no sharps or flats, which is also on the OP). Maybe try hitting a C and visuallizing red and the rest will follow.
        I am curious about using an oscillator and putting in the specific frequences in

        though.

          Also the picture notes D E and F are repeated and have 2 colours which is odd. Thinking about it my order is :
          A is violet
          B is almost brown
          C is red
          D is green
          E is blue
          F is turquose
          G is orange
          yellow is maybe F#
          This is from me thinking of piano notes, context (instrument, in a chord, key its used in) can influence it sometimes.

      a little of what this guy said. I think for me it's also related to the tempo of the song and tone of the instruments... I also see waves

      light my fire by the doors is violet/purple with some light white in the center of the shapes, when it gets to the interlude it is mainly yellow.

      an album that sounds like the album cover is fun house by the stooges... excluding the song "1970" that has more blue in it and a little bit of the song "loose" that also has some blue. "down on the street" and "tv eye" are exactly like the album cover in terms of colours

      How are random paint splatters associated? The music isn't random. Unless it's some atonal crap.

        Its certainly not atonal but I also dont have a good answer because it wasnt a conscious thing, just something I saw in my head. Like I said, context changes what I "see" so maybe because it was a pretty personal record and i was going through some shit? Maybe because my voice is shit and kinda off key? Honestly I dont care in the end because if youre going to over analyse what your brain sees then whats the point of following it? I "saw" it, knew it was what that music was to me and painted it. Were talking about abstract assosiations in the mind based on sound mang.
