It's about color byマサコ
I often perceive color in music keys, people, people's voices, musical compositions and a particular player's tone.
Let's say if I hear somebody's voice, I may identify his voice as B-flat major.
Some musicians also perceive clolr in a key; for them, B-flat
major may be brown.
The other day, I was reading a book written by a Japanese linguist who has spent much time in foreign countries since
she was small. She enjoys discerning colores in languages.
I was very impressed by her descriptions.
For her, Russian has a deep green color like the (deep) sound made by the forest when the wind is blowing.
Suddenly I realized that whenever I play a piece by Tchaikovsky,
I desire to produce a tone exactly like that.
I mean deep, moist green.
Also, for her, the Japanese language has its tone color which
sounds like the abacus beads when people are making
calculations,but it has to be an old, well-made wooden abacus.
She said it has a light dry color (or maybe souond).
Coming back to my music world, I regret that pianist Glen Gould believed that there isn't any color in tone production and I really don't agree.
Nature has tremendous color collections and it's my dream to produce the tone color which reflects velvety white snow glistening with a trasparent galaxy of lavender (purple) on top.
Anyway, I'm extremely sensitivve in this field and I'd be very happy to talk with anyone about how they perceive colors in various substances which are supposed to be colorless.
