"Visual Music is an audio-visual spectacular, a continuous, unfolding experience that stretches the boundaries between music and visual art. Music, video projections and lighting are integrated in beautiful and unexpected ways." bleep from perth ticket sales for concert.

UPDATE
The visual music programme by Kronos Quartet is no longer documented on their website (which is a pity!!). However an interesting review of the programme is here:
