    Abstract

    The emotional impact of synchronous musical and visual prominences within the cinematic experience awaits thorough empirical evaluation. Film composition is defined here as a genre of stereotypes, whose methodologies are not feasibly subject to significant redevelopment. As consequence, the research focuses on improving components of the audience recognisable functions of film music. Subjects graded cinematic clips with musical elements that varied in their synchronous interaction with visual prominences. A positive response to more frequent synchronisation between music and film was concluded. Perceptual expectancy, attention and multisensory integration are principal in analysis of the findings.
