    schema:reviewBody ""This new book and the exhibition it accompanies trace the history of a revolutionary idea: that fine art should attain the abstract purity of music. Over the past one hundred years adventurous modern and contemporary artists have explored unorthodox means to invent a kinetic, nonrepresentational art modeled upon pure instrumental music." "Music has inspired some of the most progressive art of our time - from the abstract painting of Wassily Kandinsky and Frantisek Kupka to the mid-century experimental films of Oskar Fischinger and Harry Smith to the contemporary installations of Jennifer Steinkamp and Jim Hodges. While early abstract paintings tended to approach music metonymically, the color organs, films, light shows, and installations from the mid-twentieth century to the present day engage a range of perceptual faculties simultaneously to create a plethora of sensations in the viewer." "The most complete examination of this phenomenon to date, Visual Music features ninety major works of art plus related documentation, focusing on abstract and mixed-media art forms and their connections to musical forms as varied as classical, jazz, and electronica. The book includes an introduction by Jeremy Strick; three scholarly essays, each discussing a distinct art-historical period in depth; and an additional essay by Olivia Mattis that approaches the subject from a musicologist's perspective, as well as a chronology, artist biographies, and a selected bibliography."--Jacket." ;
