I've noticed that there is a relationship between music and colour. A quick, happy tune in a major key reminds me of the colour yellow. A slow, sad tune in a major key reminds me of red, and a sad, slow minor key tune of blue. Quick minor tunes which have a feeling of toughness remind me of grey. Certain emotions and atmospheres I associate with certain tunes and colours. Minor tunes have a sad, solemn, cold, sometimes aggressive sound, whereas a sad major key tune has a tender, more gentle and merciful sound. Does anyone else associate types of tunes in certain musical scales with certain colours?

No, can't say I do.

Someone will know the term for this, it's nilasthesia?..or something like that?
Very interesting subject, it supposedly was the cause of a certain painter cutting his ear off, and no, Van Morrison is not affected...
Take me to your Lieder...

I've read about this phenomena. Can't recall the clinical name of it. There is also a condition(?) where people taste different things according to the music.

Its called synaethsesia- and its all about associating colour and sound. Maessian, and Kandinsky did a lot of research on this phenomenon- it is absolutely fascinating! Universities (Conservatoires) and Art Universities are beginning to recognise the validity of it and incorporate it into studies.
