Sonic Arts and Visual Music

The Sonic Arts and Visual Music research group explores the new relationships between sound, image and music that are being forged in contemporary practice, especially where facilitated by new technologies, methods and tools.

In particular, our research centres on a development that can be observed within this practice, where the meaning and function of both ‘sound’ and ‘music’ are drifting, both separately and in relation to each other.

Many of the most innovative areas of creative sound practice do not fall within most people’s definition of ‘music’ (sound outside music). At the same time, Visual Music posits that music might be expressed through means other than the sonic (music outside sound).
