This is a past Visual Music event held in Queensland Gallery of Modern Art in 2008. The website documenting the Visual Music program screened is really useful as it provides an excellent overview of historical works in particular with a really useful list of their films, each filmmaker/artist is linked with a page overviewing their work and listing the films screened for the Visual Music program. The website also provides information on the curators for the event - a really useful resource on Visual Music. (Author comment)
