Visualizing Music

How can movement and moving images take on musical characteristics? How do moving images reveal or disguise musical processes? Visualizing Music explores these questions with a range of creative and scholarly responses that involve research into audiovisual perception, the generation of new audiovisual compositions and analyses of performance, multimedia and interactive technology.

Music visualization is an ancient idea and is currently undergoing a renaissance. Neurocognitive research has revealed new understandings of how we process audiovisual stimuli—while digital technologies allow the coordination of audio and visual elements with unprecedented precision and vibrancy.
