One of Jacob's traits is synesthesia. I didn't know what this was before I spoke with Jacob's mom about it, but it is a pretty fascinating phenomenon, shared by some of the major classical composers (Messaien, Scriabin, et al). Basically, whenever Jacob hears a pitch, he also sees a color. So when I played a G on the piano and asked what color it was, he said green, in a very matter of fact way. The guy could not be fooled. Every tone registered the same specific color each time he heard them, and was consistently so. I thought the color might change if I played a G with a different dynamic, but nope. When I asked Jacob what color that was with a very soft G, he looked at me like, "Uh, c'mon lady. I just told you, it's green." Interestingly enough, a soft G is dark green, and a loud G is a bright green.
Anyway, I decided that today I would play something very green. It sounds a little more purple to me, but that's okay... I'm not gifted with synesthesia.

Here's a photo of Jacob working with Jesse (my inspiration for the improv project) at Lyra. Cool pic, no?
