“Yeah, but then I would owe God publishing,” says Pharrell Williams, a synesthete
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last year or so, you’ve probably seen this guy. He’s won 10 Grammys and was nominated for an Oscar. Turns out, he has a condition, known as synesthesia, which causes him to “see” music as colors.
In this very short, fascinating interview, he explains what that’s like and muses with The Dinner Party Download host, Rico Gagliano, about a possible celestial “key” for writing music.
Honestly, it is worth 4 minutes of your time to listen to this interview. Do it now.
OK, now that you’ve heard the interview, there’s still enough time to bop on down to Beverly at 3PM and sing along with Henri Smith and his band New Orleans Friends & Flavours featuring another Grammy winner, Charles Neville of the Neville brothers. We’re recording today’s concert, so you, too, can be on a record with Grammy winners! Seats are still available. Get them here.
Then, back to Cape Ann for some good music on this side of the bridge. See tonight’s full live music lineup here.
