A Synaesthete tastes our favorite songs and albums of all time
Know much about Synaesthesia? The neurological condition results in two senses being involuntarily connected. When the person hears a sound, they can also see an associated color, texture or pattern. Alternatively, they may be able to taste a particular food or flavor when a certain noise is played.
We wanted to find out what someone with Synaesthesia would taste when they listen to music. So, we caught up with James Wannerton – President of the UK Synaesthesia Association and got him to listen to the top albums and songs of all time to see how they taste…
