*Hexagram-Concordia Centre for Research Creation in Media Arts and 

*in collaboration with the Department of Music*


Montreal - Canada

August 26th and 27th, 2011




A two-day conference focused on developing an understanding of the 
practice of visual music, its definition, related creative and 
perceptual considerations, current trends, technological innovation, and 
possible future directions.

The event will take place on *Friday the 26th and Saturday the 27th of 
August 2011* and will include paper sessions, roundtable discussions, 
and creative works presentations.

We are inviting researchers to present studies that address visual 
music's multiple definitions and dimensions, questions around visual 
music aesthetics and meaning, hierarchy and correlation of sound and 
image in this context, and the audience's perception thereof. Artists 
are also invited to propose visual music presentations -- both live and 
fixed. Attendance is required in both cases.
