Synesthesia is rare but real. People who feel, taste and hear color! It's a perceptual condition of mixed sensations in which two or more of the senses are intertwined.

For Artist Melissa McCracken it’s a beautiful gift that enables her to paint the music she hears. Music appears for Melissa in a mixture of hues, textures, and movements, shifting as if it were a vital and intentional element of each song.
