Long before cinema, optical spectacles were accompanied by music. The use of acoustic and optical elements to produce synaesthetic events has not lost its appeal, indeed it seems to call for digital, computer-programmed image and sound sources, especially in the abstract realm. Since the 1990s, a lively scene of electronic musicians and video artists in Austria has been continuously collaborating and causing a sensation at international festivals with their innovative audiovisual works. Some of the most sensual examples can be found in this compilation.
