Artist Jake Andrew Nason shares what it feels like to see and experience music as colour through sound-colour synaesthesia or more specifically Chromesthesia. He creates his vibrant paintings by capturing the emotion, feeling and colour behind a particular piece of music. With his paintings and large scale projection and sound installations he intends to draw attention to synaesthesia and neuro-diversity and explore the relationship we have with colour and sound; getting audiences to think about sensory perception.
