Synesthesia is a sensation where the hearing of a certain sound induces visualization of a particular color. So, when author Melissa McCracken, being a synethete, hears a music, that is translated into a bunch of texture and colors. According to him, though synesthesia does not cause confusion, at times it lands him in trouble making it difficult for him to translate what he hears. Whether it is a name or a song heard on a radio, converting it into painting in oils and acrylics is one best way to give expression to and show the attractive colors, daily. His has a habit of covering all artists right from Led Zeppelin to Stevie Wonder for this purpose.
