VISUAL MUSIC MARATHON
at Northeastern University
Saturday, April 28th
Northeastern University is pleased to present the first-ever Visual Music Marathon, a 12-hour screening of time-based art works that reflect the convergence of musical composition and animated images, as part of this year’s Boston Cyberarts Festival. The Marathon will be held on Saturday, April 28 from 10am to 10pm, in the University’s Raytheon Amphitheater, located in the Egan Research Center on Forsyth Street.
“Visual music is an interdisciplinary artistic genre with roots dating back hundreds of years,” says Northeastern professor Dennis Miller, the event’s artistic director and principal curator. “The emergence of film and video in the 20th century allowed this genre to reach its full potential, with Walt Disney’s Fantasia serving as a groundbreaking example. The artworks we are screening all take a modern perspective on this idea.”
