CAEL2044: Radical Rock Video

This unit of study explores the intersection between contemporary visual art practice and contemporary music and sound. Is it possible to make innovative connections between sound and image that embrace experimental music, sound arts and screen based experimental work, without reverting to the moribund conventions of commercial music video? In an age where everything seems to have already been done, are there new formations of art and music to be discovered, even by people who have no traditional skills in these areas? This unit operates within an open studio framework that encompasses all skill levels from beginner, to intermediate, to advanced. You will make creative and practical responses based on your interest in art and sound through guided and self-directed individual and collaborative projects.
