CALL FOR KINETIC WORKS
MuVi2 invites artists, musicians, designers and performers, also professors

a public exhibition, with performances and discussions. Visual Music

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS

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.

The call is for two categories of participants:
. Participant A: professionals (artists, musicians, designers and performers)
