Today we've been painting music. Yes, MUSIC!. First Digital students have discovered lot of things about Wassily Kandinsky, a Russian abstract painter and also an Art Theorist. 
Olga, our English Language assistant, told them that for Kandinsky, music and color were inextricably tied to one another. Kandinsky associated each note with an exact hue. He once said, “the sound of colors is so definite that it would be hard to find anyone who would express bright yellow with bass notes or dark lake with treble.”
In fact, it was after having an unusually visual response to a performance of Wagner’s composition Lohengrin at the Bolshoi Theatre that he abandoned his law career to study painting at Munich Academy of Fine Arts. He later described the life-changing experience: “I saw all my colors in spirit, before my eyes. Wild, almost crazy lines were sketched in front of me.”

The neurological phenomenon Kandinsky experienced is called synesthesia. People with synesthesia might smell something when they hear a sound, or see a shape when they eat a certain food. Kandinsky literally saw colors when he heard music, and heard music when he painted.
After the presentation, Olga made students listen to different music and draw a composition. These are some of them.
