TERRA 606: An Eyeful of Sound
An Eyeful of Sound is an animated documentary about audio-visual synaesthesia, which describes a joining together of sensations that are normally experienced separately. Synaesthetic people may experience tastes, colors, shapes, smells, or touches in tandem with almost any of their other senses.

All sounds have color. The alphabet has color. Days of the week have color. Each day has a color and a certain shape.
