This week we welcome Melissa McCracken to Hello Atelier. Melissa paints songs. Specifically, she paints the colors that she sees while listening to songs. For Melissa has synesthesia, a neurological condition which, in her case, causes her to visualize colors when listening to music. Through her paintings, Melissa tries to share what she experiences – to grab that fleeting vision and commit it to canvas. Through her work, we non-synesthetes finally get a taste of the full musical experience.
