Respectfully, I disagree. I think this sensory overload would be the 
same as the one you "suffer" while listening for the first time to a 
Bach's four-part fugue. I think you can _learn_ to perceive simultaneously
this kind of art just as you learn to detect a single clarinet in a 
symphonic work. Perhaps you are right if one tries to combine pieces 
originally conceived as separate. But if the artist is thinking in terms
of both senses, he or she can manage to avoid such overload.

Best regards.
