My Mind Is Your Emotions

At the moment there seems to be a true hype surrounding the use of music and sound in the visual arts. More than video, sound and music are appealing to artists and art students alike. Popular music has many different traditions, but for a significant part it originates from protest music often dealing with the desire or fight for independence and freedom. Artists often engage in musical activities in order to take a radical stand in respect of the art establishment. Music turns out to be a better means of adopting an anarchist attitude than the visual arts. Although the artists in the program use the same medium the ways in which they use it is very different. The program represents both musical and visual qualities. The more conceptual approach in which the medium itself takes center stage is represented next to the anti-establishment attitude that leaves room for emotions.
