I have been dreaming of the idea of synaesthetic applications for years but haven't come up with a way to do it yet. But sounds absolutely will need chroma, that much I know. And when you "say it with feeling", the fonts will literally be perceived as "feeling"

Such an application better not be written for Windows, because the "blue screen of death" will be felt rather than seen :)
