26-year old Melissa McCracken has synesthesia, a rare neurological condition that affects about 4% of the population. For Melissa, that means she sees colours when she’s listening to music! Here are a few of her paintings.
This is how she sees David Bowie’s ‘Life On Mars’.
This one is her interpretation of Pink Floyd’s ‘Time’.
Jimi Hendrix ‘Little Wing’
Stevie Ray Vaughan ‘Lenny’
