Who can acquire synesthesia?
Synesthesia can be passed from generation to generation or simply developed at any age, normally on children and young people after making some type of art.
Sound Synesthesia
Sounds like voices, chords, music or everyday sounds, make colored shapes or lines appear on the vision of the synesthete. Every tone has a color.
What's it ?

Synesthesia is the combination of senses which can appear in various ways, most often in pairs, like hear with vision or tastes with hear. It manifests in the body due to a neurological condition which confuses the five senses (hear, taste, touch, vision and smell). It can be called “union of senses”, too. The amendment was first scientifically described in 1880.
Characteristics of a synesthete:
• High memory capacity
• Very sensitive person
• Intense feelings
• Involuntary and automatic
