Biffy Clyro, Mogwai, Frightened Rabbit and Idlewild are among the acts which have inspired an exhibition at Edinburgh’s Union Gallery, which opens on November 4th. Synaesthesia II explores the sensory relationship between music and colour, and artist Trevor Jones says listening to Scottish bands while painting for the exhibition directly influenced the art on display. Visitors will be able to pick up mp3 players loaded with the music as they browse the exhibition.

Another band who inspired him were We Were Promised Jetpacks, who have signed a guitar donated by Gibson and the Hard Rock Cafe, which is to be raffled to raise funds for the Art In Healthcare charity, which Jones works for.
