The Sound of Color

Neil Harbisson

is colorblind. Like anyone, he is infatuated with what he cannot have. In his case, Harbisson has dedicated his life to studying and understanding color. He learned that colors are simply made of light, tone, and saturation; giving each shade its own frequency. He admitted that if there was a cure for his color blindness, he might not partake. It would be overwhelming to take in that much new information, and that his intimate relationship with color might then be lost. His favorite color is Eggplant, and plans on studying invisible color (ultra-violet) color next.


Don't you think Kanye will sample these beats??
