The editorial to the book Audio.Visual—On Visual Music and Related Media describes the field of audiovisual creation, which is in constant expansion, with both artistic and commercial productions finding an increasing presence at festivals and concerts, in clubs, in art institutions, and even in theaters. A term often used in the context of audiovisuals is “visual music,” both as a historical reference and as a label for contemporary productions. Here, visual music is used as a description for audiovisual productions pursuing the basic objective of evenly balanced or equilibrated interplay between visual and acoustic components.
