The ability of the human mind to perceive and interpret a diversity of audiovisual phenomena provides manifold opportunities for the composer to construct a diverse range of sound image associations.

However, a constant desire resurfaces to codify the specific ways in which sounds and images might be combined and associated. These models are often founded upon drawing equivalencies between various parameters of sound and images.

This paper seeks to probe what drives this recurring desire and to unpack how this interest in audio-visual associations might be reframed within the context of audience perception. In doing so it seeks to demonstrate the challenges faced by explicit and codified rules of audiovisual association, and to open up the floor to more flexible and open frameworks informed by the act of perception itself.
