Music, Video, Art?

It’s not uncommon to think music videos are merely five minute promos highlighting a band’s good looks and guitar hooks. However, in recent years there has been an influx of music videos that reimagine the preconceived concepts of marrying moving image and music. With plenty of hands on examples and experience, the panel will explore the trend of the music video as a creative vehicle.

Guest speakers include:

Max Hattler - Max is an award winning filmmaker and visual artist interested in the space between abstraction and figuration in the moving image. Working extensively in the field of audio-visual performance Max has created visuals for Basement Jaxx, Diplo, The Egg and Ladyscraper.

Ewelina Aleksandrowicz & Andrzej Wojtas - Recent post-graduates Ewelina and Andrzej work collaboratively within the area of digital media, including film, DIY electronics, physical computing and AV Performance. They are currently creating live visuals and music videos for Australian band, HTRK and Warp Records signing, Leila.
