This is actually something that was postulated for a long time in patients with Autism, as often they are hypersensitive to sound and have been known to describe sound in terms of colours, and also in people with temporal lobe epilepsy, who often experience dazzling colours from certain sounds but mostly during seizures (which are often experienced as strong spiritual moments).
Nice to know they have finally found the anatomical source:)
