Music video director duo Terri Timely have created a beautifully shot and kaleidoscopic short film about synaesthesia.

It’s a visually striking piece that attempts to represent the effect of crossed senses conceptually, rather the the common approach of interpreting sounds as abstract visual impressions (probably best done in the video for Coldcut’s Music 4 No Musicians).

I also just like the idea. Music video directors are professional synaesthetes in many ways, so it’s interesting getting their take on the experience.

To see it in its full glory, I recommend the hi-definition QuickTime version.
