>Call for Computer Music-Video Works [CMJ Annual DVD]
>
>Issue Coordinators: Brett Terry, George Tzanetakis
>
>A Special Issue on Computer Music-Video
>
>In the last few years, the speed and storage of personal computers
>have made possible a wide range of integrated computer-based music
>and video. Composers are working with a variety of approaches to
>video and sound composition and processing. In so doing, many
>composers are faced with technical and compositional challenges
>germane to time-based visual form. These include issues such as the
>formal and syntactic coherence of transformations, abstract
>animations, thresholds of recognizability, and implicit narrative
>inferences. Additionally, composing in a dual-media context begets
>additional insight and analysis into core principles of time-based
>art (theme, gesture, motive, repetition, development, variation,
>contrast, anticipation). Few connections have yet been drawn between
>the challenges faced by video and experimental film artists and
>those faced by electro-acoustic video composers and their
>collaborators.
>
>Prospective authors may submit an article for the issue, a computer
>music-video work for the accompanying DVD, or both. Audiovisual
>examples to supplement an article are encouraged. Composers and
>artists will retain the copyright to their works.
>
>Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
>
>€ Music-visual mapping strategies
>€ Structuring processes of musical-visual form
>€ History of computer music-video
>€ Aesthetic and creative applications for visualization or sonification
>€ Technique master class (e.g., Jitter)
>€ Analysis of one of more computer music-video works
>€ Audiovisual haptic interfaces
>€ Multimedia information retrieval
>€ Neuropsychology of audiovisual form
>€ Cinematography in an integrated musical-video context
>€ Approaches or optimizations for music-video processing
>
>Submission Deadline for articles is Jan 31, 2005.
