Hi, I suggest looking at Ethnomite Pux. Use the google search engine.

  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.
