Presentation of final project of Pedro González Fernández (ESMUC).

"Tangencias" is the implementation for further analysis of a number of concepts and ideas related to the scenic praxis. The project questions the types of relationships that can be established between the three agents that are part of the performative act: performer, audience and space. At the same time the project investigates how the interdisciplinary formation can help to develop new ways of working within the interpretation of Western classical music.

Adrian Pino, Alba Mur, Daniel Arino, Diana Alves, Marta Pueche, Pedro González, Audience, Rubén Martínez.

eContact! 15.4 — Videomusic: Overview of an Emerging Art Form / Vidéomusique: Aperçu d’une pratique artistique émergente

Canadian Electroacoustic Community (CEC) - Mon, 05/19/2014 - 02:01

Videomusic is a field of practice that could be seen as a subset of visual music, a term which can be considered today to be familiar enough to speak for itself. This broader area of artistic activity includes digital work, cinema, painting and visual “instruments”, and dates back at least to the 18th century. Editorial by Joseph Hyde

La pratique de la vidéomusique pourrait être considérée comme un sous-genre de ce que l’on nomme « musique visuelle », appellation sans doute suffisamment connue de nos jours et qui parle pour elle-même. Ce champ d’activité artistique élargi comprend le travail numérique, le cinéma, la peinture et les « instruments » visuels, et remonte au moins aussi loin qu’au début du XVIIIe siècle.
