Sound You Can See by B1nd1 Sound You Can See by B1nd1
Well dayumn I love me some sparkles.


Whenever I see people with earbuds/headphones on, just walkin' down the street, I like to picture the visuals to whatever music they're listening to.
I like pretending that music "looks" a certain way.



Please stop leaving comments about Synesthesia :P I've had over 50 people explain it to me already, I know what it is now!!

this is a really great illustration. I like to listen to classical music like this, you know, picturing it. Although if I had to guess what he's listening to from your picture I'd guess some kind of motivational pop.

I seriously would not mind dating someone like him, haha. Amazing use of color, and I know there's probably a billion comments stating that, but oh well. Awesome work!

Wow, this is AWESOME!! I'm a lifelong musician and music major (Violin Performance) in college. I've done this my whole life!! Personally, I don't try to picture the music, (whether I'm listening or playing it) if the music moves me I can feel moving around me in colors and rushes like a roller coaster or moving like a butterfly!

Wow, I really wish I could draw. I see these beautiful colors and movement and lights and shadows.

This is beautiful :3
Synesthesia seems to be the new trendy condition for people to have, you can't mention it once without people claiming that they have it, h'oiii~

Anyway, I absolutely adore your mix of colours here, the bright mixed with the seemingly muted tones. It's as if underwater, in a blue sea, where people keep dropping in drops of coloured ink to the mix.

Just a lovely, serene piece with a quiet energy to it, really nicely done!

one of your newer ones (chalk, I think) has colors like this...

but I like this one a bit better. You can feel the motion of the sound swirling up and pushing forward.

Awesome!

Wait, are you SURE you've heard all there is to hear on synesthesia? Because I saw some great sites that... no, I'm just kidding. Just commenting to tell you how fabulous this is, and how I do wish I could see sound. Wonder what it could look like. Wonder if it could tell us something about the music we listen to...anyway. I'm a fan of this picture. Es wunderbar.
