"There is more energy released in Sunrise and Sunset and times of rainbows than perhaps in any other way." Ronald P. Beesley, Creative Ethers

Sound and color are both forms of energy, which vibrate. As the vibration of sound becomes higher and lighter, the sound is transmuted into color. Steven Halpern gave a graphic example of the sound/color relationship:

"…vibrations at 1000 cycles per second are easily audible. If you double the vibrations to 2000 cycles per second, that is one octave higher. If you double it again to 4000 cycles per second, that is another octave. A normal piano spans a bit more than seven octaves. If, hypothetically, we could extend the piano keyboard another 35 to 50 octaves higher, the keys at the higher end would produce colors, rather than audible sounds, when played." (Sound Health-The Music and Sound That Makes Us Whole, p. 182-183).

An interesting side note is that if we were playing this keyboard 35 or so octaves below audible sound, we would be playing Chi, life force energy!
