Synesthesia is an animation/documentary that explores the brains and experiences of those with synesthesia. A neuro-cognitive phenomenon when one or more senses are blended together. A world where one can taste a color, see a sound, where music can smell like seaweed, and the letter A is undeniably fire engine red. Through interviews, animation, music and sound design, Synesthesia gives us a peek into the multisensory experiences that are created in the pathways of the brain.

    I have colour – number – letter synaesthesia. It is interesting that in the video you mention that everyone has syneasthesia. I have come to that conclusion myself. I also think that, to a certain extent, synaesthesic-like ability can be learnt. I have written an article on my experiences and ideas on my website http://www.mike-holden.org.uk/ . Click on the Consciousness tab and the article is called Synaesthesia. I hope you find it interesting. Any feedback would be appreciated.
