    So would I !
    But this has me wondering:  what would someone
with synesthesia do with seeing new colors?
Would he/she experience new, previously unknown
musical elements? Or would it translate
out into "beats" such as when two musical instruments
are slightly out of tune with each other? (Or like the complex
beats heard at the start of my latest band practice
when _everybody_ was slightly out of tune with everybody
else! And I'm not including the trombone player, who
was doing it intentionally!  ;-)   )
