TEDxBrainport 2011 - Peter Nagelkerke - Traveling between stardust and brain cells

Ever considered 'listening' to a Van Gogh painting? If not, Peter Nagelkerke's talk, accompanied by Ad Maas on the piano, will certainly convince you otherwise. Did you for example know that Vincent van Gogh got kicked out of piano lessons for his repetitive criticism that "certain tones sounded too yellow"? As a walking encyclopedia, Nagelkerke takes us from A to Z though Van Gogh's relationship with music and the scientific background of "Synesthesia" (the overlap between senses). And for those who are not interested in the theory, the piano improvisations by Ad Maas speak for themselves.About TEDx.TEDx was created in the spirit of TED's mission, "ideas worth spreading."
