Color hearing is a form of chromesthesia in which a musical tone elicits a color. One well-studied case involves an art teacher who has a range of consistent linkages between tone and color.

And rapid major chord tone sequences elicited rapid flashes of colors, "somewhat like fireworks exploding."
