CALL FOR PAPERS AND CREATIVE WORKS

DESCRIPTION

A two-day conference focused on developing an understanding of the practice of visual music, its definition, related creative and perceptual considerations, current trends, technological innovation, and possible future directions.

The event will take place on Friday the 26th and Saturday the 27th of August 2011 and will include paper sessions, roundtable discussions, and creative works presentations.

We are inviting researchers to present studies that address visual music’s multiple definitions and dimensions, questions around visual music aesthetics and meaning, hierarchy and correlation of sound and image in this context, and the audience’s perception thereof. Artists are also invited to propose visual music presentations – both live and fixed. Attendance is required in both cases.
