Simple Synesthesia

My wife - a flautist - has a tendency to describe music in terms of colors. This concept is surprisingly difficult for my simpleton brain to comprehend, but I won't allow that to get in my way! Using midi files from my favorite video game - Banjo Kazooie - I colorized the melody in each song as described below:

  • Color: The note, where higher notes are purple shifted, lower notes are red shifted
  • Width: How long the note is played
  • Intensity: Striking force of note, where softer notes are whiter
  • White: Silence
