Addie Johnson, in her own words:
Audio Essay: Synesthesia
Synesthesia: the subjective, secondary, involuntary sensation of crossed stimuli: the neurological phenomenon that produces something to the effect of hearing colors, or seeing colors when reading words.
Listening to music is as much a visual experience as it is an auditory experience to me. I can see words as people speak them; colors fade and dance across my vision. This Creative Nonfiction piece explores the oddities of this condition, and includes interviews from two other Collegiate synesthetes: Mr. Svab and Mrs. Norman Risch.
