Audio and Video Illusion called the McGurk Effect

It is true, music is best heard when your eyes are closed or if you can get really really close to the stage performer.

Everyone knows this because visual cues can at time be distracting. Visual cues like special effects and music videos can also enhance the sound experience.

Simply what you hear with your ears, can actually be overridden and changed by what you see with your eyes.
