I don't know Ernie Gusella's work but your description makes me think of Phill Niblock's work.
EXTREME MAY 2003 CAT # XDVD001 [Multi-zone | Colour | NTSC 5.1 | 3:28:00
Phill writes: "In concert I frequently show films from a series that I made over a 20 year span, generally titled "Looking at the Movement of People Working". At ZKM and MAMCS. Some of these will form part of a new DVD on the Australian record label, Extreme."
This is the content:
Film (side one): 1. Peru; 2. Mexico; 3. Mexico; 4. Mexico (total time 1:36)
Music: 1. "Every Tune", Daniel Goode, clarinet (22:48); 2. "Summing III", David Gibson, cello (32); 3. "Four Arthurs", Arthur Stidfole, bassoon (22:28); 4. "E for Gibson", David Gibson, cello (20)
Film (side two): 5. Hong Kong; 6. Hungary (total time 2:02)
Music: 5. "Cello & Bassoon", David Gibson, cello and Arthur Stidfole, bassoon (25:05); 6. "A Mix of Cello & Bassoon and Contrabassoon & Contrabass" (25:05 minutes), Arthur Stidfole, bassoon and contrabassoon and David Gibson, cello and contrabass; 7. "A Third Trombone", Jon English, trombone (22 minutes); 8. "According to Guy, version III", Guy Klucevsek, accordion (22:00); 9. "Not Untitled, Knot Untied - Old", Relache Ensemble of Philadelphia (22:00)
I also remember seeing a piece that Steina did at ETC where violin chords were used to create transitions between a single camera's view of the four seasons, but that was video. You might want to check out ETC's history project for other work of this type:
DJ Spooky was performing a "re-version" of Birth of a Nation a couple years back, though I wouldn't call it visionary. You can find extracts from the film and the score here:
This one doesn't exactly fit your criteria as it is filmmakers collaborating with a musician, but the performance I saw of Gibson/Recoder/Menche was superb.

Can anyone recommend an artist who makes videos and also composes and plays music that is in, or over, the image track. Someone gifted in both art forms -- a visionary image-maker and unique composer/musician. I'm not talking about(and do not want) music videos. I prefer that he/she be known primarily as a moving image artist who happens also to be a composer/musician. Nor am I talking about live "performance video." I want so-called single-channel post-produced videotapes, with music that is not banal pop.
This is for a project about Ernie Gusella. If you know his work, then you know what I'm talking about. I want to compare him to other artists who make both image and music.
