Visual Music

Please Note:

In 2009, this section of my site, along with a number of others, was extended, developed, polished, and folded into my latest project, Emergent Music And Visual Music: Inside Studies. The new project includes a book, a set of four DVDs, soon to be released CDs, and, eventually to be released, Part 4 featuring the writings and compositions of other artists in field. For more details on the project, go to its Introduction.



Visual Music is based on the principle that there are both natural visual manifestations and invented visual representations of musical elements and musical structures. The Visual Music page links to images from Pellegrino's video and laser pieces; articles, books, and messages on the theoretical foundations and applications of visual music; and sites of fellow music visualizers with their own perspectives on the field. The information in this section of the site is accessible through either of two lists, a Titles List and a Dated Annotated List (latest posts first).
