Hearing colours in the new year.

So begins the new year ... And with it comes words.

Kandinsky claimed he could hear colours by listening to music, and as a result he would create paintings. This condition is called synthesia  

(1. A condition in which one type of stimulation evokes the sensation of another, as when the hearing of a sound produces the visualization of a color.) 

Lets try to experience the same auditory mixed sensation with various found and made texts allowing us to hear the colour words and imagine its feeling/place/sensation.

I feel not such a visual year coming on ...
