Sonochromatic Scale, Chord Structure

I began creating a manual documenting what I've learned about the connections between music and design. I've started off by relating notes to colors in the light spectrum, based off the system that Neil Harbisson uses (see my post below). I then began to analyze how basic chords are composed, and started translating it into the visual world.

Here are the first few pages of my music/color manual, modeled off of Neil Harbisson's Sonochromatic Scale. I'll be adding more as my research continues.

12 Note scale represented in corresponding colors, showing lighter/darker versions meant to represent higher/lower octaves.
Visual representations of notes combining to make all basic major/minor chords. The most basic chords are made up of triads - three notes combined to make one harmonious chord.
