MuVi 5 - Call for Works

Call for Works

MuVi5 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 Sixth International Congress "Synaesthesia: Science & Art", to be held from the 18th to the 22th of May 2018, Palacio Abacial y Convento de Capuchinos, Alcalá la Real (Jaén, Spain). 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.
