Hi! My name is Alexa Moore, I am an international costume designer and maker based in the UK. I am originally from Canada but have found myself living my adult life in England. I have a unique ability that enables me to hear colour. When I hear music I see vivid patterns,colours and textures. Sometimes I can even TASTE colour. This is what is called Synesthesia. Synesthesia is a perceptual phenomenon in which stimulation of one sensory or cognitive pathway leads to automatic, involuntary experiences in a second sensory or cognitive pathway.
A lot of my design work begins with drawing sounds and patterns I hear.
I wanted to create a multi sensory sketchbook to try and showcase what happens in my mind when I hear music. I chose 'melancholy' as my theme and created playlist of songs that are melancholic. The idea is to listen to the song while looking at the image on the page. Really let go, open your mind, and experience.
