About the Project
Video/Musica was a three-day festival of collaborative, multimedia works by composers and video artists. The six projects encompassed a wide range of visual imagery and music, including improvised jazz, funk, new music, and rock & roll. The event also incorporated a combination of live music and large-screen video images, which created compelling environments filled with sounds, lights, and images.
The three events were intended to challenge the conventions of the era’s mainstream music and video industries via references to the era of silent film. Video/Musica gave musicians and videographers from diverse artistic and cultural backgrounds the opportunity to work together and explore new interpretations of these familiar mediums.
