Join us on a journey into the experiences of a synesthete and learn what it is like to hear in color.
Synesthesia is a very rare neurological condition in which one or more sensory pathways become intertwined. When one is sense activated, another unrelated sense is activated at the same time.
For Chris Thomas (a composer), the experience of hearing sound activates an involuntary swirl of colors and textures. The vivid sensation of hearing music in color is a blessing and a curse. While synesthesia offers a unique artistic perspective, the involuntary nature of the condition can be a constant distraction.
This discussion will cover the experience of living with synesthesia, its impact on daily life, and how it can become part of the creative process. Chris will even bring a series of colors and perform the sounds related to them. Participants will observe a work of art, then listen to how it "sounds."
Chris Thomas is a composer for film, television, theme parks, and a TEDx speaker. His scores have been nominated for a Hollywood Music in Media Award, Film & TV Music Award, and he won the Gold Medal Prize at the Park City Film Music Festival, and Best Film & TV Music award at eWorld Music Awards. Chris has written music for several Emmy-nominated films, and for Woman Rebel, which was shortlisted for an Academy Award. In television, he works as a composer, orchestrator, and conductor for networks such as ABC, FOX, CBS, and HBO.
