This work takes place in the framework of a global research on the synthesis of sonic textures and its control through a gesturebased interaction in a musical practice. In this paper we present different strategies to link visual and sonic textures using similar synthesis processes; theoretical considerations underlying to this problematic are firstly exposed and several personal realizations, illustrating different approaches to design a gesturally controlled audio-visual system, are then described.
