Bowerbird is pleased to present an evening of “visual music” by composer and video artist Matthew Greenbaum. Currently, the term “visual music” applies to works usually digital that closely combine abstract musical and visual ideas. Usually these are in video format, although the term can include sound sculptures and sound environment installations. The composer and video animator Matthew Greenbaum uses the term “visual chamber music” to describe his works for live performer and video animation. These works include the Rope and Chasm, an evening-length setting for mezzo soprano of parts of Nietzsche’s Also Sprach Zarathustra with character animation. The works on this program of part of an ongoing series of works for solo instrument and video animation with electronic sound.
