Addictive TV: Audiovisualise

Synopsis
Today’s audiovisual artists perhaps owe as much to the VJs and music producers who emerged from 90s electronic music culture as to 20th Century experimental film makers like Norman McClaren, Len Lye, Jordan Belson and Oskar Fischinger, who began laying the foundations of this fusion genre, based on a synthesis of motion, colour and sound, over half a century ago. Now, using contemporary techniques such as sampling, remixing and digital manipulation alongside traditional film, video and music production methods, modern audiovisualizers are able to push creative boundaries ever further. Music and image play an equal, complimentary and synergistic role in this arena with modern software allowing a much closer and more specific integration than was ever previously possible. Whether it’s finding new ways of visualizing music or expressing images sonically, the goal is the same now as it ever was: to produce something that can be watched repeatedly in much the same way as we listen to music.
