Sonar - Gravité, 2009
"Gravité (Gravity) Falling objects synchronized to produce rhythm. 2009" source vimeo page: This is quite brilliant as it demonstrates that a visual music work does not neccesarily have to consist of abstract imagery and music - it can consist of real action footage. However, in a visual music work, the visual and music become like a connected entity - a visual music object. I discussed this idea in my latest paper on Visual music - a composition of the 'things themselves' at the Sounding Out 5 conference held at Bournemouth University, UK. I am beginning to see more works of audio and visual that make such interplays. (authors opinion) Gravité from Renaud Hallée on Vimeo .

Many animation techniques were used and experimented with in this film. "Sensology is a short animated film by Michel Gagné that visualizes in abstract form, an improvised musical session by two leaders of the avant-guarde jazz movement, Paul Plimley (piano) and Barry Guy (bass). The film was started in August 2006 and completed in July 2010. ... Sensology was handdrawn (painted) with a Wacon tablet at first, and later, a Cintiq, using Adobe Photoshop. The drawings and frames were then composited and manipulated in a 2D software called Animo. There is no vector animation at any point in the film." Source youtube description:
