Abstract

Analysis of three examples of live, solo visual music practice prepared with CNMAT support will be presented: Cenzontle by Roberto Morales; SoundPainter by Diane Douglas and Arduino Video Installation by Sabine Gruffat.Although materially and structurally quite different these pieces have some interesting features in common - the visual and sonic matieral is controlled concurrently by a single performer and certain objets trouvs (Found Art) are a key organizing element.
