Synesthesia

Kevin Guico
Class of 2013
Jazz Studies

Synesthesia is the condition in which a stimulation of one sense triggers a secondary sense in conjunction with that. This creates feelings of "seeing music", "hearing motion", or "tasting colors". Although I don't have it, I think it accurately describes the way I perceive everything. I don't like seeing things in just one light; different perspectives are fun and vital for psychological growth. It emphasizes expression and interpretation. How everyone expresses things differently is interesting. IT's complex and can't be fully described or defined. It can only be experienced.
