Somewhere in the archives of the Bibliotèque nationale de France is this collection of ever-blooming sound-flowers.

And in the tower Great St. Mary's Church, in Cambridge, England, someone has stashed a collection of hangman's nooses! Or so it seems, but actually those are the bell pulls, for ringing the church bells. Still. Who knows what nefarious things may have happened in the tower while the bells were being rung?

Our local church has such a set of pulls and a full peal of bells.

Oh, I love those sound-flowers. I don't think I've ever seen phonographs with such lovely horns before.

Seeing those flowers that emit sound, I am trying to imagine sounds that emit images. So far, I can only conceive the images being made within minds.

Oh, I like that! Though it's a bit of a pity that translation equipment should be required.

The other sort of thing I was vaguely thinking of was persons/creatures whose sensoria had wavelengths that are sound to us, be light to them. (And presumably their music-wavelengths would be our vibrations, and maybe our sight-wavelengths would be impalpable to them.) But that wouldn't render the visions of the tunes accessible to us, in itself.
