Synesthesia is the peculiar and supernatural condition of translating sensory stimuli of one type into the mental perception of another. Synesthetes commonly claim they hear numbers, taste colors, and visualize musical melodies and chord structures. This is a God-like ability to tap into the ethos and universal patterns of the natural world in ways most humans cannot understand. Explosive Japanese math and post-rock band Haisuinonasa released this incredible video a few months ago entitled “Dynamics of the Subway” which presents savant-level visualizations over the already virtuosic musical form effectively creating a synesthetic experience for all of us. This band is currently building up their discography and touring in Japan; keep an eye out for them if you’re into this kind of music.
