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:

MMT#37- Mad Cow Festival Visual Recital Workshop

Partnering with the Notes at 9,000 Emerging Artist Series, we developed a pilot Visual Recital Workshop for the 2007 Mad Cow Festival, where amateur artists created mixed media visuals for synchronized live performance to the music of Debussy. I collaborated with winners of the Emerging Artist Series competition in a fantastic concert combining dance, music, and visuals in a format that one listener proclaimed as "the future of live classical concerts!" With the Visual Recital Workshop, the audience member is immersed in the performance and plays a vital participatory role as co-creator with the musician. Many thanks to SoYoung Lee, Amy J. Clark, Charmain Schuh, and the creative team at The Dairy for this innovative approach to the live concert experience! Here's the video storyboard:

Music Meets Tech #24: Visual Recital in Brazil, Part 1 - Pictures at an Exhibition

I finally received the DVD video and CD audio files for my performances at the I Virtuosi Festival in Recife, Brazil this past December! The stage crew did a fantastic job getting the Visual Recital setup together - and what a terrific setup, with the images filling up the entire back wall of the theater!

Here is the first portion of Mussorgsky's "Pictures at an Exhibition", with the following sections to be presented as consecutive video podcasts. The entire performance will eventually be available as a hi-def video download.

This video performance is being presented as a Quicktime Video file (approximately 52.5 MB) and as an iPod-compatible Video Podcast (77 MB for the video iPod format). Running time is appoximately 9.5 minutes.

Making Art Music Mobile: Visual Recital at a Public School

I just finished putting the video together for my performance of Poulenc's "The Story of Babar" for my sons' elementary school. I'd love to get feedback on the quality of the digital piano setup, using Pianoteq's Piano Simulator (running off of my old Toshiba M205 Tablet PC, my very first tablet pc!) Since i needed the M-Audio Fast Track Pro to interface the MIDI cables and JBL speakers, i was stuck using my Samson C-01U USB microphone for a mono recording of the show, but i'm still rather pleased at the overall quality of the digital piano performance.



The picture above links to a Quicktime version of the video. To see it as a Windows WMV file, click here.

As i've stated before, i'm hoping that with this digital setup that i'll be able to offer performance options in non-traditional venues. With piano simulator technologies like the one Pianoteq offers, digital music setups can feel so much more artistically satisfying!

Music Meets Tech #22: Visual Recital at Darlington Arts Center





Here is a video sample from last Saturday's Visual Recital at Darlington Arts Center. The Visual Recital is a new approach to integrating visuals with live music where the musician controls the digitized visualizations directly as an enhancement of the musical performance. Two movements from Charles B. Griffin's "Vernacular Dances" are featured in this clip - apologies in advance for the lack of camera angles and the poor sound quality, the pvc frame setup left me with no time to get my extra cameras or microphones in order! The audio was actually extracted from the camcorder microphone, cleaned up a bit and reinserted...

This video performance is being presented both as a Windows-compatible WMV file (approximately 27.7 MB) and as an iPod-compatible Video Podcast (88 MB for the video iPod format). Running time is appoximately 7.5 minutes.
. A higher resolution Quicktime movie is also available, clocking in at 109 MB in size.

Visual Recital Video Podcast: "The Story of Babar" by Francis Poulenc

Here is a video of the complete Visual Recital performance of "Histoire de Babar" by Jean de Brunhoff and Francis Poulenc, narrated by Keisuke Hoashi, presented this past summer at the New York Summer Music Festival. Running time is about 25 minutes. Due to the length and size of the video file, i've opted to present this in several formats - the Quicktime format is the smallest. This is also being presented as a podcast (a rather LARGE one at that - about 110 MB!)

Click here for the Quicktime version.
