The Interplay Between Music & Visual Culture

Mar 16, 2021

10:15am – 11:10am CT

The relationship between music and visual art isn’t new. However, with audiences today primarily searching and consuming in the context of platforms like Instagram & TikTok, and the public’s growing fascination with creative technology, the inextricable link of music and image raises new questions, concerns, and opportunities. Musicians connect with audiences not just through their music, but also visually. Visual arts (film, performance, installation) often rely on music to complete the experience. Music + visual media collaborations can push forward both realms, resulting in something greater than the sum of its parts. In this conversation, artists, musicians, and creative technologists discuss their unique perspectives on the interplay between music and visual culture in their work.
