Home of the Visual Recital Concept


The Visual Recital is an exciting new approach to integrating live art music with dynamic imagery, animations, and synchronized video clips, where the performing musician directly controls the digitized visualizations as an enhancement of the musical performance. With the visuals serving as a powerful narrative lattice, art music becomes immediately accessible to audiences young and old who may have never experienced a live recital setting.

Visual Pianist Hugh Sung has developed a system that integrates cutting-edge visualizations with a simple foot-switch trigger that enables the Art Musician to perfectly synchronize visual effects that illustrate the narrative sweep and structure of each musical composition

NEW! Watch a sample from a performance at the Darlington Arts Center featuring selections from Charles B. Griffin's "Vernacular Dances", with visuals projected onto a 9' x 7' pvc frame rear projection screen:

Visual Recital Workshop at the Greenport School

In this video, I presented a Visual Recital workshop at the Greenport School in New York, featuring movements from Modest Mussorgsky's "Pictures at an Exhibition" and artwork by 3rd, 4th, and 6th grade students under the supervision of art teacher Anne McDonald.

Music Meets Tech #29: How to Set Up a Pianoteq System

Pianoteq is an amazing piano simulation program that allows for unprecedented musical expression on digital pianos. If you're new to digital pianos and virtual instrument plugins, this episode will help untangle all those wires and break down the setup process into easy steps. I start with simple diagrams for either a computer or dedicated sound module setup - aka, the Muse Receptor - then follow with a "live video" example of a computer setup with the help of a talented young pianist, Katie Tran.
