ay 16, 2013 — Whether we're listening to Bach or the blues, our brains are wired to make music-color connections depending on how the melodies make
us feel, according to new research from the University of California, Berkeley. For instance, Mozart's jaunty Flute Concerto No. 1 in G major is most
often associated with bright yellow and orange, whereas his dour Requiem in D minor is more likely to be linked to dark, bluish gray.
I say... the entire underlying premise behind these observations has ties with Synesthesia'tic learning(my own term lol). Not necessarily in terms
that an individual actually is aware of these connections, but I guess 'subconsciously' they play a major role. That's the wrong word, but will
have to due for now.
I would also attribute this to many other aspects of cognition and personality, including visual-spatial recognition, cognitive mapping, emotions
while in particular 'rooms' or even terrains. There's much to take from this paradigm, in regards to all sorts of cognitive therapies, teaching
methods, and appealing to the over all means in which we convert particular stimuli. There's a pattern to each of them that corresponds with another
sensory input, which in return influences brain chemistry... in the end, becoming one of the strongest tools for improving methods of teaching.
There's a reason all the great philosophers were obsessed with spectrum's, rainbows, geometry, and music... It's because those who excelled in all,
were then able pattern these understandings into their comprehensions of new things, ability to increase abstract thought, and devise such wondrous
philosophies, religions and everything in between or outside.
Granted this is just music, but similar traits are found in geometry with language, emotions with colors(empathy), color with taste... and so forth.
Just a theory....
Here's some other interesting stuff:
Synesthesia (also spelled synæsthesia or synaesthesia, plural synesthesiæ or synæsthesiæ), from the ancient Greek σύν (syn), "together," and
αἴσθησις (aisthēsis), "sensation," is a neurological condition in which stimulation of one sensory or cognitive pathway leads to
automatic, involuntary experiences in a second sensory or cognitive pathway.
