Understanding Terminology and Concepts related to Media Art Forms--Stanley Gibb
The development of technology in the late 1960's and 70's opened new ways for musicians and artists to combine sound and visual elements. The ability to synchronize the two could now be done in ways not possible before. Composers and artists labeled their works with terms such as multi-media, mixed media, inter-media and others. These terms primarily described the fact that their works combined different mediums, but had no implication of the principles used in their combination. "Understanding Terminology and Concepts related to Media Art Forms" categorizes and associates specific principles of organization with each term.
(David Cope in his book New Directions in Music, Chapter 8: Extended Media Resources-quotes directly from this article (p.255).
His Footnote #4: Stanley Gibb, Understanidng Terminology and Concepts Relted to media Art Forms," This is possibly the most well thought out and formulated writing on this subject and is highly recommended to those seeking real insight into media art forms. )
