Dear Philipp, Scott Lipscomb has done some related work in this area in film (see references below). I would also argue that this topic does fit quite well within the realm of auditory display. Stephen Brewster has presented A/V work in this area at recent auditory display meetings (ICAD). The proceedings are online at Lipscomb, S.D. (1997). Perceptual measures of visual and auditory cues in film music. Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, 101(5, ii), p. 3190. Lipscomb, S.D. (1995). Cognition of musical and visual accent structure alignment in film and animation. In D. Wessel's (Ed.) Proceedings of the Conference of the Society for Music Perception and Cognition, 35.
