Nope. But there's this :-

Otherwise I'd say something like Parallax Test, which is kaleidoscopic in a sense - might come somewhere near to evoking a sense of colour. After all, in the film, it is used to provoke (or not provoke) an emotional response from seeing a quick succession of photographic images in a quasi-linear sequence.

The Goldsmith electronic material from both Illustrated Man and Logan's Run could suffice - with a little bit of imagination.

Several sources indicate that essentially Sinatra just waved a baton after he had encouraged the musicians to help out Alec Wilder in the recording of his Octet jazz project which Columbia was initially reticent to release. Mitch Miller (of later Columbia fame) as an oboist on the album verified that. The problem with the conducting part on this album and the "Tone Poems" is that, as often noted in the industry, Sinatra essentially could not read music, though his style, memory and pre-training from others on his songs were of immense help to him in becoming the immense singing talent of his time. His stamp of approval or name on an album virtually guaranteed its success.

[startquote from OnyaBirri ]

Isn't it established that Sinatra conducted the Columbia Alec Wilder album from the late 1940s?

Also, it's too bad that the CD of "Tone Poems" sounds like it's being smothered.[endquote

Of a similar nature to "Tone Poems of Color", in the UK in 1977 Vic Lewis released an album simply titled "Colours". Apart from Vic Lewis' own contributions, it featured compositions from Malcolm Williamson (Ochre), Ken Thorne (Green), John Scott (Gold), John Cameron (Yellow), Randy Edelman (Grey) and Robert Farnon (Mauve). Many years have passed since I last heard it; I seem to recall that Robert Farnon's offering was the same tune as his "Irina" theme for the Brigitte Bardot character in SHALAKO.

Nice record.

Haven't seen the film in years, but would Chris Young's cue "I Remember Red", from JENNIFER 8, fit the bill? Not sure if Young was trying to musically equate the color red or underscore Uma Thurman's emotional state....probably the latter but might be worth a look/listen.

I have always thought that John Barry's score for Follow Me (aka Public Eye) sounds like summer, which (for me) evokes yellows and golds (sunlight), and blues (the sky) if that helps, or am I completely bonkers?

Bernard Herrmann's orchestrations for JASON AND THE ARGONAUTS are said to evoke bronze.
