3. Visual Influences on Auditory Attributes As anyone who has watched a virtuoso musician will know, visual input affects the aesthetic experience of the audience. More direct influences of vision on auditory sensations, and vice versa, have also been reported in recent years. For instance, noise that is presented simultaneously with a light tends to be rated as louder than noise presented without light (Odgaard, Arieh, & Marks, 2004). Interestingly, this effect appears to be sensory in nature, rather than a “late-stage” decisional effect, or shift in criterion; in contrast, similar effects of noise on the apparent brightness of light (Stein, London, Wilkinson, & Price, 1996) seem to stem from higher-level decisional and criterion-setting mechanisms (Odgaard, Arieh, & Marks, 2003).
