dc.description.abstract Arch of Neo (AoN) is an audiovisual performance and video work exploring the convergence between abstract visual music and the movement of dance. The practical part of the thesis consists of the documentation of the live audiovisual performance and two video works. The production part can be found on the accompanying DVD as movie files. The main objective of the thesis is to explore methods of creating visual counterpoints and analogies to the music of AoN. The other main objective is to look at convergence of the movement of two art forms, dance and abstract visualization, and examine how these two expressions could work together in creating a novel combination of moving image and sound. The written thesis situates AoN within the conceptual framework of VJing and visual music. The visualization of AoN differs in terms of narrativity in the two medias it is presented. The imagery of the dance is prevalent in the video works and the abstract in the performance. The combination of dance and abstract moving image explores the issue of fragmentary identity. The performance of the work examines the aspects of synchronization in real-time audiovisual performance. en
