If VIA provides a new look at the synchronicity between aural and visual riff-makers, then this loop is a celebration of that impulse. "Phenomena" taps the international video-sharing community from a local portal. Oscillating between beauty and disgust, social commentary and paranoia, the examination of the love/hate relationship between sound and image is anything but settled. If there is a thread you can find between these works... draw conclusions.

Works by Pittsburgh Filmmakers' students/members, local video artists, and videos already wandering Vimeo's back alleys will be brought together and exhibited through Pittsburgh Filmmakers' Vimeo channel.

VIA MUSIC & NEW MEDIA FESTIVAL Oct 5 - 9 & 16th

Initiated in 2010, the VIA Music & New Media Festival brings together the best artists from home and around the world to perform together over the course of 5 days and 40+ hours of programming. Bands, DJs and producers are paired with visual artists for one-of-a-kind performances that may only be seen once in a lifetime. Experimentation is key. The opportunity to merge a great music lineup with out-there video art, new developments in interactivity, code, and gaming allow the VIA festival to mutate every year, in a way that’s fresh and always a little unexpected.
