Visualising Music: Audio-Visual Relationships in Avant-Garde Film and Video Art

Visualising Music explores alternative models of music-image relationship in film and video art, investigating how the boundaries of cinema can be challenged, both practically and theoretically, by a redefined audio-visual interaction. The first half of the book considers the significance of music in several types of non-Hollywood film, including the work of Werner Herzog and Derek Jarman. Building from here, the second half explores the expanded spaces of video installation art, with close reference to the immersive musical sites of Bill Viola.

This milestone volume maps fifty years of artists’ engagement with sound.
