Abstract or description

This chapter discusses the performance of visual music. This type of performance can be undertaken by a soloist or ensemble of artists working towards a shared visual music ideal. Commencing with a discussion of the concept of performance and liveness with relevant historical context, the chapter will then consider matters related to visual performance materials, technologies, visual design and performance staging. The design of digital visual instruments is also examined. The chapter concludes with a case study of the performance known as Biphase. It explores the conceptualisation of the project, rehearsal and performance, as well as aesthetic considerations for cohesion between sound and image.
