Not exactly. Sound is the brain's interpretation of vibrations in a physical medium measured by the ears. Color is the brain's interpretation of the frequency of photons measured by the color receptors in the retina. Sound and color don't exist physically.

This is the same as measuring sound with a sampler and displaying it as a wave form, as a bitmap, or as a bunch of numbers. The data that comes into the brain as measured by the sensory organs is just that, data, and that has to be interpreted before it means anything.

No argument there.
