Historically much of the activity in the area of visual music has been focused on the creation of visual compositions stimulated by musical performance. For the purpose of this investigation the studio practice will concentrate on the shared systems and language of composition, what Zilcer identifies as the 'application of formal compositional elements of music to painting'. 1 In part, the project will draw on the expertise of British composer Michael Berkeley and conductor Peter Manning.' The premise for the research is to identify the presence of process and system in each of the practitioner's work. Also through collaboration with a composer and conductor the project offers a further opportunity to consider the effects of music found in contemporary painting practice. The initial findings of the research are used to establish an intellectual framework where neither the audible or visual elements of the disciplines take precedence over each other. Three catalogue publications are included in the dossier: Tectonics, Uncertain Harmonies and Collision. The catalogues are a record of the work produced during the period of the PhD study and should viewed alongside the text in the following order: Tectonics, Chapter Two, Uncertain Harmonies (or Fall), Chapter Three and Collision, Chapters Four, Five and Six.
