Nowadays – with digital technologies – many artists are able to perform both music and video in real time.
Those audiovisual performances can be seen in many different formats: live cinema, djaying with vjaying;
music concerts with live visuals; live coding.
Live Cinema can be described as an intersection between the techniques of vjaying: mixing videoclips in real
time – with the objective of cinema: telling stories trough moving pictures. Although, the act of mixing and
improvising video in real time, creates difficulties in the construction of a perceptive narrative.
