This paper aims to bridge human hearing and vision from the viewpoint of database search for images or music. The semantic content of an image can be illustrated with music or conversely images can be associated with a piece of music. The theoretical basis of the bridge is synaesthesia, a property of human perception. A prototype cross-media retrieval system is built, using principles established in the neuroscientific study of synaesthesia.
