While we have separate sensory faculties for vision and audition, it has long been recognised that visual data may inform on various acoustic phenomena. Technological advances have shifted the focus of this visual data, from the macroscale of a sounding body, to vibrational modes, and ultimately the acoustic waveform itself. I will present an overview of visual-acoustic data through history, from sensory perceptions of the medieval mind through to current research.

This talk is part of the Surfaces, Microstructure and Fracture Group series.
