Synesthesia is that trippy neuropsychological phenomenon whereby stimulating one sense stimulates another – i.e., sounds create mental visuals. While scientists estimate only a small percentage of the population are true synesthetes, many of them are artists for obvious reasons. Disney’s 1940 classic Fantasia offered filmgoers a chance to commingle sight and sound by setting elaborate animated sequences to famous works of classical music. By illustrating Stravinsky’s ponderous “Rite of Spring” with scenes from Earth’s violent prehistory, animators gave people bored or confused by classical music a useful tool to make it more exciting: Think about dinosaurs. The San Antonio Symphony will be providing a similar service by playing John Williams’ score for Steven Spielberg’s groundbreaking special-effects showcase Jurassic Park alongside an HD projection of the film, creating an immersive experience in sight and sound and a decent excuse to watch a dude get ripped apart by velociraptors while you’re wearing a tuxedo. $25-$65, 8pm Fri, 2pm & 8pm Sat, 2pm Sun, Majestic Theatre, 224 E. Houston, (210) 226-5700, majesticempire.com. — Jeremy Martin
