A contrast cust is a transition between two sequences that juxtaposes and contrasts subjects in order to create a high visual and/or auditory impact. For instance, somebody dreaming of a beautiful field of flowers, shot A, may suddenly wake up inside a burning building, shot B. The sound would be serene and peaceful in shot A, and suddenly loud and painful in shot B. This contrast between peace and chaos is intensified through the sudden transition.
