There’s nothing like listening to your favourite song and “feeling” the music rush through you, but one woman is taking it to the next level by actually seeing it. Yes, Melissa McCracken can see sound and luckily for us, she’s giving everyone a glimpse into what she sees by putting it on canvas.

McCracken, from Kansas City, Mo., has seen colours in books, math formulas and concerts all her life. She has “synesthesia,” a condition in which one sense (i.e. hearing) is simultaneously perceived as if by one or more additional senses (i.e. sight). Or as she says, “the music I hear is translated into a flow of texture and colours.”

Using oils and acrylics, she magically puts songs on canvas. Ranging from Radiohead to John Mayer, her paintings are extraordinarly beautiful and captivating. Take a look for yourself:

Want to get your hands on a Melissa McCracken original? She’s currently being inundated with orders (ah, the power of the internet), but keep an eye on her Facebook page and her Etsy account for new prints that she just might put up for sale.
