Looking at the history of overlap between the visual and auditory arts, Visual Music Masters asks such questions as: what were the first audiovisual instruments? What was the influence of music on Kandinsky's work? What are the relationships between VJs and live cinema? What is synesthesia?

The book looks at examples ranging from Toulouse-Lautrec to Nam June Paik, from Handel to Xenakis, and from Thomas Wilfred to Kurokawa, with 150 color images of works by these artists and many more. Visual Music Masters argues that abstract audiovisual art has now reached a kind of maturity and is enjoying renewed vitality today.
