Visual Music, hosted by Untitled Entertainment and Microwave International New Media Arts Festival (which sounds like Sunbeam’s record label), promises to deliver only the sweetest ear candy, with the arrival of UK creative collective The Light Surgeons . Dubbed True Fictions, their act is an audio-visual gang-bang that fuses documentary film making, photography, music and animation (like a married couple rekindling the bedroom flame), with a soundtrack created by 25 Big Apple-based musicians. Also making an appearance will be Beijing ‘visualists’ (which sounds like old men with long lenses at Shek O) 8GG , Washington DC’s Fort Knox Five (not to be confused with the Fabulous Five), New Zealand’s Ian McKinlay and DJ G. Promising to offer both aural (not oral) and visual stimulation, Visual Music is the first production by newbie Untitled, and with the Light Surgeons on the ticket, they’re entering the music scene with a colossal bang.

Visual Music offers candy for the ears and the eyes
Say what you will about their food and weather, the Poms have done a lot for the international music scene. Groups like Queen, The Sex Pistols, Oasis and even Coldplay (beloved by our rainbow bumper sticker friends), have benchmarked the world’s music culture for decades to come. They moan, they’re imperialistic, and often way too close to ‘mumsie’, but when it comes to the globe’s greatest musicians, the Brits have definitely graduated beyond clubs, pubs and parties.
