Welcome to HorizonVU Sound and Movement
Forum for Creative Practice in Music and Dance
HorizonVU Sound and Movement provides a forum for curious minds with interests in music and dance spanning multiple facets of creativity in performance, composition and choreography. Our network encourages the participation of persons dedicated to understanding the theories and practices of performance as well as deepening our knowledge of cultural history, physical science and technology, social science, and philosophy.
HorizonVU Sound and Movement represents the coming together of scholarly insights with practical hopes and dreams. Our horizons are a limit of our intellectual and physical capabilities as well as a dynamic, changing view toward the future. We think in terms of where we are today and the direction in which our musical compass points us.
The HorizonVU Sound and Movement operates independently standing for intellectual curiosity, innovation and the love of music . We are serious persons having viewpoints – our VU-points (that is, Volume Units) and information we share are intended to invite conversation and collaboration in the spirit of affording enriched opportunities to express the art.
