The blending of the senses, called Synesthesia, looks and sounds gorgeous in this video. Let neuroscientist and violinist Kaitlyn Hova show you why.

aNewDomain — Here’s my pick for today’s featured video. It’s software engineer and musician Katylyn Hova’s demonstration of what it is like to experience music as colors. One in 23 people alive has Synesthesia, the blending of the senses, and Hova says she is one of them.

This 360° video production is best viewed in Google Chrome or in the DiscoveryVR app on your iOS or Android device.

The video sounds and looks just beautiful. Check it out below.

For aNewDomain, I’m Gina Smith.
