Our ear is a different machine than our eyes and use different method of analyzing input data. Our ear process the sound waves as mixtures of different frequency (20hz to 20khz) and send it to our brain exactly that: mixture of different frequencies. Our eyes, however, process lights differently than our ear. Two light waves of diffent frequencies will be mappex in our brain as average of the two frequencies. Thats why color mixing works.
