How Vivid Synaesthesia and Muse Live Briefly Disintegrated My Conscious Mind.

Recommended Posts

Hi there, I wrote a blog post about how Matt's guitar playing lit up my synaesthesia (that's a condition where my senses are crossed so I literally see music when I hear it). It inspired a ton of drawing and much of my current artwork.


No other guitarist lights my vision up quite like Matt! His chaotic, distorted sound creates the most incredible twisting, crackled silver/white and occasionally yellow/gold moving shapes. That little guitar solo in the middle of Dig Down? A towering column of lightning and smoke, delicious and breathtaking.


Go have a read :)




There's another here about how I translate what I see in his guitar playing into hand sculpted silver jewellery.



Disclaimer: I am a professional artist but the purpose of this post is NOT to sell you anything, absolutely not. I love Muse - you love Muse. I'm sharing the love because I spend so much of my day with Muse playing in my ears and they inspire my work to a huge degree <3 <3 <3 and I thought you might like to see the results :)


Here are a few of my drawings of Matt's playing from the Glasgow show

I understand you, Muse lit up my synaesthesia as well. I can see, feel, smell and taste Matt's voice when he sings, a real ecstatic mix of senses. But I'm not an artist and I can't  translate all I feel... I'm going to see your art 😊
