Master Thesis Scriabin's Synaesthesia

In April 2022 Martin Kaptein finished his Master’s Thesis and Research at the Fontys Conservatory of Tilburg, The Netherlands. The topic of the presentation was Colors in Alexander Scriabin’s Sonata No.8 Op.66: Exploring the relation between color and harmony in Scriabin’s music. This can be described as the first step to revolutionize the perception of music, with wide-ranging effects for piano performance practice, music education and audience perception.
