Proposals are invited for an edited book collection on Music and Multimedia,
edited by Jamie Sexton. This is scheduled to be part of the 'Music and the
Moving Image' series, published by Edinburgh University Press.
This collection will focus on the visual aspects of multimedia and music, so
please do not send in proposals on topics such as music journalism on the
web, or piracy over the Internet.
The book will aim to cover a diverse range of subjects, which will include
both historical investigations, as well as a focus on new developments.
Possible topics include:
.Multimedia and early film: live accompaniment as precursor of multimedia
.Contemporary composers/music acts performing special live scores for silent
.Multimedia installations which feature heavy musical presence
.Music exhibitions (such as David Toop's Sonic Boom)
.Live performances which featured heavy use of visual display, often
including films projected
.Films that attempt to represent such live multimedia performances
.'Synaesthesia' and the filmic avant-garde
.Use of the Internet to combine visual and aural interactions (with the use
of graphics, flash and film, for example)
.The growth of music video on video and DVD
.Music and video games
Jamie Sexton is a lecturer in Film and New Media at the University of Wales,
Aberystwyth. He is the co-editor (with Laura Mulvey) of Experimental British
Television (Manchester University Press, forthcoming).
