Berklee student Annie Elise drops the track Open Eyes. Annie gave a talk at TEDxLancaster that became the most-watched TEDx talk on the subject of synesthesia which physically makes her see sound and hear color. The song was premiered as part of the #iVoted festival on election night 2020 where top streaming artists from swing states were asked to perform a few songs for voters.
Annie notes, “I loved being able to create sounds that produced colors I liked. It felt like being a conductor of an orchestra, except I was a conductor for color.” Influences from artists like Bad Snacks, Lila Drew, and FINNEAS helped her find a production niche in combining light vocals, live violin, and synthesizers to create music”.
