INTERNATIONAL EXHIBITION OF VIDEO AND MOVING IMAGE ON SYNESTHESIA AND VISUAL MUSIC
PALACIO DE LOS CONDES DE GABIA, GRANADA, SPAIN, 28 APRIL - 1 MAY 2007

CALL FOR KINETIC WORKS
MuVi (Visual Music) invites artists, musicians, designers and performers,
also professors and
university students, to submit proposals of kinetic works to be part of a
public exhibition, with
performances and discussions. Visual Music exhibition is part of the Second
International Congress "Synaesthesia: Science & Art", to be held from the
28th April to the 1st of May 2007, Palacio de Exposiciones y Congresos, in
Granada, Spain.

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS
Latest date for submissions is 30 November 2006 (date of postage).

TOPIC
The topic of the exhibition is visual music and synesthesia. For "visual
music", we intend every representation to be only visual or audiovisual, suggested by the music.
The correspondences between the visual and music can be the results of
synesthetic perceptions (the visuals are the mental images suggested by the
music); or the correspondences can be the result of studies on the
analogies between the visual and musical languages (rhythms, tonality,
texture, colours, etc.). The support of a narrative thread is not required.

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?
The call is for two categories of participants:
. Participant A: professionals (artists, musicians, designers and performers)
. Participant B: university (professors, students, or graduated within the
last 12 months).

WHAT CAN YOU SUBMIT?
Any Moving Image (video, animations, etc.) - only visual kinetic work,
audiovisual, or interactive
- is eligible for submission. University professors can submit a collection
of didactic works. Students, one or more works, produced in an university
course.
The work does not have to be published and must be free from copyrights.
