About the Book
This book is for those who like to think about musical melodies and color palettes and the representation of knowledge. Although it looks quite like a coloring book, the book was actually designed to inspire thinking and talking about visualizations of melodic patterns. That the book affords opportunities to sing along with the images that you color is a bonus! "Coloring Music" was inspired by the phenomenon of chromesthesia, which loosely speaking is an association of sound with color. It contains 12 blank rectangular grids, each corresponding to a musical melody. Accompanying each grid is a color key and a melody map which collectively indicate how to color the blank grid so that it will chromesthetically represent the melody. Tips on how to best make use of the book are provided in the form of an informal preface and an eclectic mix of end notes.
