Pasquale D’Silva Talks About How He Designed the ‘Keezy’ App Using His Own Ability To See Music In Color

Pasquale D’Silva talks with Fast Company about how his ability to see music in color – a form of synesthesia called chromesthesia (color synesthesia)- inspired him to design Keezy, an app that combines both color and sound to create musical sequences.

For me, it is when I associate anything with color: names, faces, sounds. Anything that triggers a sense can often trigger color.” He relates the sound of a heater to a “ghosty peachy pink,” dogs as “brown and purple,” and his partner on Keezy, Jake, as “red and black.”
