About: Visual music, sometimes called “colour music,” refers to the use of musical structures in visual imagery. It also refers to methods or devices which can translate sounds or music into a related visual presentation.
Visual music also refers to systems that convert music or sound directly into visual forms, such as film, video or computer graphics, by means of a mechanical instrument, an artist’s interpretation, or a computational process. The reverse is applicable also, literally converting images to sound by drawn objects and figures on a film’s soundtrack, in a technique known as drawn or graphical sound. Visual music overlaps to some degree with the history of abstract film, though not all Visual music is abstract.
