We see the sound

1. “Sound + color”?
The property of sounds to evoke color images has been noticed a long time ago. Much has been written about the color rumor of A. Scriabin, who saw musical sounds in color. The whole direction in art – color music – is based on this property of music sounds.

This room could not be called a doctor’s office: on the walls are paintings, at the tables are the bowed heads of young people who painted portraits and landscapes.

What is an art school?
