The mapping could be understand by cartography. One speaks about synchronous mapping if the control of the sound made visual in a sequential way, if sound and image are simultaneously controlled by intentional parameters, pre-written, or dependent on a gestural transducer. Antonio de Sousa-Dias talks about the systematic tendency to the synchronicity in the relation sound-video, wishing to propose other approaches [1], just like Benoît Courribet [2]. Alain Bonardi proposes a decorrelated mapping in time between sound and image [3].

In the context of interactive arts and virtual environments, the design of a mapping, a scale-setting, possibly integrating kinesthetic data (instrumental gesture, gesture danced or interacting), has directly to see with the composition, a spatialized mode of writing with N dimensions [4]. The question of the mapping and of interface setting is major in the interactions image-sound, describing a transductive relation, which co-constitutes the terms that it articulates [5].
