In this study, the history of interdisciplinary interaction was examined, and examples of how different disciplines were handled together in Ancient Greece and the Middle Ages were given. By referring to the historical process of color and sound analogy, the versatility of the Renaissance artist and the idea of the first color harpsichord developed by Arcimboldo are emphasized. The parallel evolution of plastic arts and music with the idea of humanism and the importance of positive sciences since the Renaissance has strengthened the relationship between these two arts. In this context, the similar thoughts and parallels of the Baroque period in painting and music aesthetics have been included in this study, and the color keyboard design developed by the French priest and scientist Castel's controversial and interdisciplinary perspective was examined. The 18th century is a period of intense interdisciplinary experimentation and, unlike previous art theories, emphasizes autonomy in aesthetic sense. Inspired by Newton’s book Opticks and Pythagoras’s Law of Spheres, Castel thinks that this instrument, in which he associates notes with colors, will impress the audience as much as the music itself. Based on the interaction of color and sound, this initiative is potentially designed to combine two arts. The functioning and effects of the idea of color music in Castel's dream, his success or failure in this subject, and the views of the artists and theorists he inspired about this design constitute the center of the study.
