The term "visual music" is a loose term that describes a wide array of 
creative approaches to working with sound and image. It may refer to 
"visualized music" in which the visual aspect follows the sound's 
amplitude, spectrum, pitch, or rhythm, often in the form of light shows 
or computer animation, while in other instances it may refer to "image 
sonification" in which the audio is drawn from the image in some 
fashion. Sometimes visual music describes a non-hierarchical correlation 
between sound and image, in which both are generated from the same 
algorithmic process, while in other instances, they are layered without 
hierarchy or correlation altogether. Both sound and image may be 
presented live, fixed, or as part of an interactive multimedia installation.
