ARS Electronica: ANIMATION FESTIVAL 2012 – About Music

Screening of digital animation works with a talk by Jürgen Hagler, curator of Ars Electronica Animation Festival

MoTA- Museum of Transitory Art in collaboration with Austrian Cultural Centre presents a selection of digital animation works from a series ABOUT MUSIC, which was part of last year’s edition of Prix Ars Electronica in Linz. We will present 12 works of artists coming from Austria, Australia, Great Britain, Taiwan, Germany, Japan, Canada and Portugal. All of the approaches in this lineup focus on music, each one in its own key. In this screening program we are trying to think about sound through a medium of digital animation which is predominant in contemporary electronic music in the form of audio-visual performances and concerts.
