While researching on music visualization I came across colour scales, studies from the beginning of the 18th century till the present day of all of the possible correspondences between the elements of color (hue, saturation and value) and those of sound (pitch, amplitude, and tone color), the most often proposed mapping is of pitch to hue. Many such mappings have been proposed and some were built into light instruments.
