So would I ! But this has me wondering: what would someone with synesthesia do with seeing new colors? Would he/she experience new, previously unknown musical elements? Or would it translate out into "beats" such as when two musical instruments are slightly out of tune with each other? (Or like the complex beats heard at the start of my latest band practice when _everybody_ was slightly out of tune with everybody else! And I'm not including the trombone player, who was doing it intentionally! ;-) ) Dan Sulani ----------------------------------------------------- likehsna rtem zuv tikuhnuh auag inuvuz vaka'a.
