Trumpet Synaesthesia

Synaesthesia (with several different spellings – see this concise, fascinating article ( – is basically a condition where two different sensory elements get linked.

Here are three types:

Grapheme-colour: Grapheme-colour is the most common type. People with this type of synesthesia associate letters and numbers with distinct colours.

Lexical-gusatory: Lexical-gustatory is a rare type of synesthesia. People with this type of synesthesia experience different tastes with certain words they hear.

Musical-colour: People with musical-colour synesthesia see colour when listening to music.

So what’s the Trumpet to a synethist? Since I’m not a synethist – I’m just making this up!

The trumpet is a very chilled white wine and it’s either yellow or gold … and a tangy Indonesian food spice!!

Genuine Synethists please respond!
