Advancement of the concert cycle Synesthesias. Listen to the colors, watch the music. Some creators have been affected by synesthesia, a neurophysiological phenomenon that has given rise to seemingly supernatural experiences, consisting in the transfer of perceptions from one sense to another. Composers who see colours when listening to music or painters who hear sounds when contemplating a painting have left in their works the imprint of a prodigious vision of the world. This cycle invites to recreate synesthetic sensations in a concert hall by diluting the borders between sound and colour, between composition and painting, with multimedia features.
