Real-time Audiovisual Performance Systems

Two students performing their Real-time Audiovisual project

From the history of visual music and abstract film to the contemporary notion of live cinema, this course is an exploration of the synesthetic relationship between sound and image in a real-time performance setting. Through readings, viewings, and case studies students gain an understanding of the history and theory of live audiovisuals. During the course students team up to develop and master a real-time audiovisual system of their own invention.
