Mixed Media

Artists that fall into the Mixed Media category are those who create pieces that have not only audio elements but visual elements as well; "visual elements," in this case, refers to more than just stage props. A multimedia performance might include multiple screens for video projections, lighting, performance art, dance, or any number of simultaneously occurring art forms. Some of the many artists who have staged multimedia productions in the 1990s include Laurie Anderson, Richard Teitelbaum, Stevie Wishart's Sinfonye, Granular Synthesis, and Stephen Vitiello.
