It seems to me that, in its broadest sense, visual music is a audiovisual
work that is
(1) created by using some kind of compositional link between aural and
visual events - thus exploring the synesthetic field
(2) performed as something that integrates aural/visual gestures
(3) perceived as something that integrates aural/visual gestures
Visual music has also been used in the last decades to mean an audiovisual
work associated with artists such as Oskar Fischinger, Mary Ellen Bute, John
Whitney, and Larry Cuba. It usually uses 'abstract' visual forms and various
music genres (including Western Classical music and Indian Classical music).
*It is this specific artistic field that I'm most interested in.*
Please let me know if you think visual music is actually something else, or
if you have contancts (or any info) that might be useful for my research.
