International Conference on the Multimodal Experience of Music. The Digital Humanities Institute, Recent scientific research has demonstrated that infants are born with multisensory perception, known as infants synesthesia. However, as their brains develop into adulthood, those senses become independent of one another and develop for specific functions e.
It may be beneficial in music and by extension, the arts to cultivate the development of synesthetic perception for faster learning and creativity. Create a PDF version to print or download.

By observation of students of varying ages, over twenty years of pedagogical practice piano students aged in this particular caseit is evident that the reaction to sound is accompanied by stimulation of other senses: Galeyev states that ‘synesthesia is a normal and common ability of intersensory association, a particular manifestation of imaginative thinking or when it appears in verbal form a double metaphor, in which the transfer of meaning inherent in metaphor is accompanied by the transition into another sensory modality.
It is common among students of a young age to confuse perception of ‘fast tempo’ with increased loudness, and softer dynamics with ‘slow’ music.
Thus, the question is raised: Some hypotheses explain these phenomena by the condition which we are all born into: As noted by Maurer and Maurer ‘the newborn does not keep sensations separate from one another’ but instead ‘mixes sights, feelings, and smells into a ‘sensual bouillabaisse in which sights have sounds, feelings have tastes’ p.
This mechanism assumes that, although early processing of auditory and gubaidulona input is parallel, attention is allocated in a serial manner with the modality that is faster to engage attention dominating later processing. The process of sound visualisation may be referred to as ugbaidulina mapping’, or as described by natural synesthetes as: It could be possible to enhance the musical imagination and therefore learning of a child by finding ways to stimulate the voluntary synesthetical senses, as this should boost the involuntary senses in return.
The aim of this research is to develop and apply a pedagogical method of tactile and sound visualisation based on cross-modal communication of senses in response to a musical texture of an image. Previous studies showed that symbolic inducers e.
SA 25 years oldand AB 23 years old. They were right-handed females with 7 years and gubaidulna years of formal musical training, respectively. SA and AB reported visualizing each pitch of a given octave in a distinct spatial location.

Interestingly, both reported that the pitch tones rose up diagonally from lower left to upper right. Synesthesia was assessed using short interview. During the interview the synesthetes were asked to draw a sketch that simulated their pitch organization. Leikin analysed transcriptions of the piano rolls, which Scriabin a synesthete recorded on the Hupfeld and Welte-Mignon reproducing pianos in and It is evident that synesthetic perception is different, not only with respect to the observation of an image and its association with broader senses, but in its influence upon the spatiotemporal organisation of musical textures.
Synesthetic minds may deal with image processing faster: Ttoys and Habbard note that: It is as their brains are set up to make links between seemingly unrelated domains. In other words, just as synesthesia involves making arbitrary links between seemingly unrelated perceptual entities such as colors and numbers, metaphor involves making links between seemingly unrelated conceptual realms’ p. Garth and Porter reported the tendency of young children to attend for longer to colours, relative to achromatic stimuli.
On the basis of known properties of neurons in tkys visual cortex i. This process may therefore be thought of as ‘turning sounds into vivid imagery’ Luria,p. The following diagrams attempt to reproduce models of sound-sculpture, according to synesthetic perception.
Point O1 designates interoceptive sensations and Point O2 designates proprioceptive sensations’ Galeyev,p.

Kevin Mitchellpara. This may be due to genetic variants which affect the functional segregation of specialized circuits in the brain.
Thus, hearing particular sounds may stimulate hoys very real perception of colored shapes in visual field, tasting flavors may induce the tactile sensation of specific objects, and different toyss may induce specific emotions’ Mitchell,p.
Gubaidulina has said about her Musical Toys that ‘I often thought of my childhood and of the lack in those days, of piano pieces that were able to take one back into the highly imaginative world of toys. At that gubaidluina I also gubaidulins upon toys as material from which I could elicit sounds; they were part of the world of my musical sensations.
With this collection, I have paid a late tribute to my childhood’ cited in Roster,p. The fourteen short piano miniatures are studies in expression and style, in which the piano’s various sound possibilities and its techniques of touch-imaginative, sensorial and contrast are of central importance.
The poetic, mysterious or amusing pictures suggested by the titles- whether character-portraits of musical instruments, animals, musicians or musical descriptions of resounding or moving tools or of living landscapes.
The following examples of scores Figures 4, 5 and 6 demonstrate the attempts of the author to extract images according to the musical textures that are present. As a result ghbaidulina structured colouring, they aim to musicla the so-called ‘inner synesthetical screen’. Mechanical Accordion green graphics ; 2. In Magic Smith Gubaiculina 5 the author extracted three images characterised by very individual melodic and textural gestures. Trehub has discussed adult-infant parallels in music processing: For adults, as for infants, these changes are detectable, but they are irrelevant to the identity of musical pieces.
Equally intriguing is the finding that infants are more precise in perceiving diatonic melodies that violate the conventions of known music: For diatonic melodies, infants detect pitch changes of a semitone or less, even when the melodic contour is unchanged’ p.

Concerning the functional specialisations for music processing in the human newborn brain, Perani et al. Infants with casual exposure to music possess the abilities for relational processing of pitch and tempo; for the differentiation of consonant vs. Natural synesthetes tend to display great sensitivity to yubaidulina timbres and textures, since their ‘neonatal system of perception’ has survived into adulthood, facilitating cross-modal multisensory experiences of music. What is important in pedagogy is to exploit ghbaidulina inherently synesthetic tendencies of the infant in order to support learning, and not to close down this natural source of creativity.
Bor, Gubaidylina, Scwartzman, Clayton and Seth have reported that ‘adults can be trained to acquire synesthetic experiences’.
This presents a valuable opportunity to enrich adults’ music experience via cross-modal associations. Ramachandran and Hubbard suggested that ‘synesthesia causes excess communication amongst brain maps […] depending on mysical and how widely in the brain the trait was expressed, it could lead to both synesthesia and to a propensity toward linking seemingly unrelated concepts and ideas — in short, creativity’ p.
Cross-modal associations may be beneficial in teaching music to young children. Adult perception and childlike imagery are different, however. In order to stimulate and utilise the creativity musiical a young brain to its maximum potential, the teaching process should aim to communicate using a variety of methods including: Consciousness and Cognition, 28 Adults can be trained to acquire synesthetic experiences.
