Visualizing Music   

How can movement and moving images take on musical characteristics? How do moving images reveal or disguise musical processes? Visualizing Music explores these questions with a range of creative and scholarly responses that involve research into audiovisual perception, the generation of new audiovisual compositions and analyses of performance, multimedia and interactive technology. 

Music visualization is an ancient idea and is currently undergoing a renaissance. Neurocognitive research has revealed new understandings of how we process audiovisual stimuli—while digital technologies allow the coordination of audio and visual elements with unprecedented precision and vibrancy.  

Featuring graduate students from the School of Music, the Visualizing Music webinar explores a range of approaches to music visualization and promotes focused, directed modes of audiovision. Speakers and topics will include:  

  • Synesthesia and audiovisual composition – Andrew Aycoth 
  • Visualization of Antonin Dvořák's New World Symphony  – Samantha Burgess 
  • Visualization of Eric Ewazen's Northern Lights – Ben Shaheen 
  • Original tap dance and snare drum composition – Amelia Duplain 

Moderated by Dr. Anna Gawboy, Associate Professor of Music Theory  

Visualizing Music is presented in partnership with Urban Arts Space’s Hybrid Arts Lab, a multi-venue learning lab that experiments with how art is imagined, made, viewed and understood.
