I am in the process of building this page, I intend to link to useful video resources, playlists and archives
Center for Visual Music Archive, Library and GalleryThe center for visual music has put an archive online - the Center for Visual Music Patreon Channel that consists of digital copies of original and rare documents and many documents and video clips of films and interviews and other such resources that are of relevance and important for the study and dissemination of a visual music history via the Vimeo Patreon service. Become a patron to access this archive, one can choose a number of membership options: fan, artist/researcher, associate curator. There are video clips and interviews with many artists from the history of visual music.

The archive is regularly updated with new material added as the archive grows in time. However, if you are like me, it is an archive you would like to come back to and view works and documents again and again. That it is regularly updated is a bonus.
